EPNA Spring 2019 Newsletter


The Enderis Park Neighborhood is widely known as a wonderful place in which to live. This is, in large part, due to the friendships, active neighborhood association and strong sense of community and commitment that exists among the neighbors and businesses within our community. The mission of the Enderis Park Neighborhood Association (EPNA) is to “promote neighborhood stability and a rewarding quality of life for all by working with neighbors to support and maintain an attractive, diverse, respectful and safe community.”

All EPNA activities and neighborhood improvement projects are planned and organized solely by VOLUNTEERS. Volunteers are the heart and soul of the neighborhood and we want to express our MOST SINCERE THANKS for their enthusiastic and selfless commitment of time, resources and talents to these wonderful activities.

On February 21, 2019 EPNA sponsored a Volunteer Recognition Event at Kam’s Thistle and Shamrock. Volunteers were treated to a light dinner, beverages and an evening of friendship and grateful appreciation.

A HEARTFELT THANK YOU is extended to OUR AMAZING VOLUNTEERS who contributed to the success of our 2018 EPNA events.

MPS Recreational Survey

Milwaukee Recreation has been working closely with the Enderis Park Neighborhood Association to increase the recreational offerings at the Enderis Park Fieldhouse. As a result of these efforts, a survey has been created with the purpose of identifying the recreational wants and needs of the Enderis community. Scan the QR code with your smartphone’s camera to assist with taking the survey on your phone (or just type the URL into your internet browser). The estimated completion time for the survey is two minutes, and your participation in this survey will serve to greatly improve the recreational offerings in the Enderis community indefinitely! Please

Note: The survey will only be open to responses for one month until April 5th. Let your voice be heard!
