Gardens of Wauwatosa

    The Wauwatosa Beautification Committee is a volunteer organization dedicated to preserving and improving the beauty of our neighborhoods by planting and maintaining gardens throughout Wauwatosa.  

The garden beds you see around the “Welcome to Wauwatosa” signs, in the boulevards and around other public spaces in Wauwatosa are the work of the Committee and the Committee’s volunteer gardeners, the“Gardening Angels”.  The beds around the Library/City Hall entrance and throughout the parking lot are full of flowering trees, shrubs, irises, lilies and other lovely plants. These gardens beautify the area and brighten the day of the employees and visitors to the Library and City Hall.  The WBC also encourages and recognizes Wauwatosa residents and business owners that contribute to the beauty of our neighborhoods by annually presenting the “Yard of Distinction” award to homes and businesses in Wauwatosa. 

The Wauwatosa Beautification Committee is not funded by any government agency, it depends on funds raised through its annual garden tour and support from individuals. The 15th annual Secret Gardens of Wauwatosa Tour is July 11, rain or shine, from 10 a.m. to 5 p.m.  The tour will start at the Kneeland-Walker House (7406 Hillcrest Drive) and include seven Wauwatosa gardens.  Master gardeners will be present to answer questions and plant societies will sell plants and garden-related items.  Tickets are $10 in advance at some local businesses and $12 on the day of the tour.  Call 258-9014 for more information. 

Support the Wauwatosa Beautification Committee and the work it does and have an enchanting day in the secret gardens of Wauwatosa.
