Leaders in Milwaukee County's parks department are asking residents to weigh in on the system via an online survey. That input will be used to help craft a master plan.
Why the planning?
Although Milwaukee County is rich with green space - 15,000 acres of parks, the century-old system comes with a price.
According to a 2009 audit, the parks face $200 million in deferred maintenance and addressing it will require the county to make some tough decisions.
