The Garden District Neighborhood Association (GDNA) is an ‘all-volunteer’ organization dedicated to serving and improving the quality of life for those who live in the 13th Aldermanic District of the City of Milwaukee. Our main objective is to enhance the quality of life for residents and neighbors through community beautification and sustainable landscape design.
In partnership with the Gateway to Milwaukee Business Improvement District, the University of Wisconsin Extension, Marquette University, the City of Milwaukee, Milwaukee County, Energy Exchange, Inc., and other nonprofit organizations, GDNA volunteers have embarked on several ambitious neighborhood projects that limit stormwater discharge into our creeks and replenish groundwater. The most heralded of these is the establishment of the three-mile-long ‘6th street Green Corridor’ where bioswales with native plantings have been constructed to capture thousands of gallons of stormwater that would otherwise end up in the Wilson Park Creek, a tributary of the Kinnickinnic River.
Other notable projects include our annual landscape design awards for residents and businesses in the Garden District; the creation of an active community garden where neighbors rent plots to grow vegetables; and this year’s ‘soft-opening’ of a 66-space Farmer’s Market to provide fresh, locally grown produce to our neighbors and our yearly Garden District Days Festival.
