Parks, Recreation & Forestry Overview
Passionate, enthusiastic and proactive, Oconomowoc Parks and Red Director John Kelliher described his occupation and love for the City of Lakes. The Parks, Recreation and Forestry Department offers a variety of services for the residents of Oconomowoc through the Recreation Division and Parks and Forestry Division.
The Recreation Division provides leisure service opportunities by providing recreation programs, sports leagues, public parks and open spaces, waterfront services, and special events. The Parks and Forestry Division provide support services to the community by maintaining all City public parks / open spaces and managing the city’s urban forest.
John said he’s especially proud of this city’s ongoing events, from Legion Band concerts, regattas, Moonlit Movies to Light Up The Lake, Festival of the Arts, German Christmas Market, Yellow Brick Road Run, Community Gardens, Veterans Memorial Park and Imagination Station. He warned against the invasive Emerald Ash Borer ruining the city’s Ash groves. This year already the Center has generated $50,000 in rentals through special events and private party occasions. The Center also hosts a county senior meal site, serving meals to the community’s elderly Mon-Fri. Go to www.oconomowoc-wi.gov to learn more!
