The Washington Park Band Shell is an iconic art deco structure that has provided a beautiful backdrop for concerts and performances for generations. It was recently renovated by the Harley-Davidson Foundation.
The Washington Park community is home to the idyllic Washington Park, one of three Milwaukee parks designed by Fredrick Law Olmsted, who designed Central Park in New York City. Washington Park was the original location of the Milwaukee Zoo (thus the ‘buffalos roam’ clue). Today, the park is home to a branch of the Urban Ecology Center.
