Membership Drive; A Message From The EPNA President

Updated: Jun 30

YOUR HOME! OUR ENDERIS!

A MESSAGE FROM THE EPNA PRESIDENT

What does it mean to be a part of OUR ENDERIS? It’s the joy of being part of a special community, it’s generations of families growing up in the neighborhood. It is summer block parties, evening walks through the neighborhood, and decorated homes to celebrate the holidays. The Park at its heart, serves as a gathering place with sports fields and courts, a splash pad, playground, our own Little Free Library, and benches for taking it all in. The Enderis Park Neighborhood is described by realtors as “one of the best places in Milwaukee to live, work, raise a family and just have fun.” You have made it YOUR HOME and we are all proud of being a part of OUR ENDERIS.


The Enderis Park Neighborhood Association (EPNA) includes residents, business owners and friends. EPNA provides leadership and focuses on activities that promote the quality appearance of our homes, businesses, and public areas. It encourages communication and collaboration within our neighborhood. EPNA works to ensure that our neighborhood remains a safe and inviting place to live, work and play and coordinates with government, private and public resources to strengthen the neighborhood.
