About the Community

Overview

Over 71,000 residents call the county seat of Waukesha County, the city of Waukesha, their home. The economy of this town was originally built around tourism for the clean natural springs found in the city, rumored to have medicinal powers. Today, the most common industries for residents to work in are manufacturing and healthcare. The top employing companies in the city are GE Healthcare, Waukesha Memorial Hospital, and ProHealth Care. Pewaukee borders the city to the north, while Brookfield and New Berlin neighbor Waukesha to the east. Interstate 94 crosses through the northern point of Waukesha.

Recreation

Nearly 1,080 acres of green spaces are spread over the 48 parks in the city. Sports, biking, and hiking are common activities in Waukesha, thanks to many public outdoor amenities and trails. With small lakes sprinkling the city, beaches can be found for a day in the sun. The Fox River runs through Waukesha, allowing for many opportunities to fish, canoe, and kayak. In addition to the natural attraction, Waukesha provides exciting activities such as Veloce Indoor Speedway and a farmer’s market.
