Department History

The Pewaukee Park and Recreation Department was established as a Joint Department (servicing both the City and the Village of Pewaukee) in 1997. The Department is responsible for providing residents with recreational program opportunities as well as maintaining the parks.

Overseeing the operation of the Department is a Joint Park and Recreation Board. This advisory board consists of three (3) City citizens and one Common Council Alderman as well as two (2) Village citizens and one Village Board Trustee. All of these positions are obtained through appointment by either the City Mayor or the Village President. This Board typically meets on the second Wednesday of each month. This Board is responsible for overseeing the annual budget, policies and hiring of full-time staff.

The Pewaukee Park and Recreation Department operates with a full-time Director, Recreation Supervisor, Park Maintenance Supervisor and Park Foreman. In addition, it hires approximately 13 part-time maintenance staff as well as 60 part-time recreation staff on a seasonal basis.

The Pewaukee Park and Recreation Department is located in Pewaukee City Hall.
