Living up to the imagery behind its name, Greenfield, Wi, offers an array of more than a dozen beautiful parks in addition to the Root River which flows through the western part of the city. Greenfield has a relatively low-population density compared to surrounding areas thereby endowing its yards and lots more handsomely than in neighboring towns. Located just southwest of Milwaukee, homes in Greenfield stand conveniently close to Interstate 43, Interstate 894 and State Road 24 allowing for easy access to the Milwaukee metro area’s many offerings.
According to the 2010 US Census, Greenfield has about 37,000 people, 16,860 households, and 9,285 families. The median income for a household in the city was $44,230, and the median income for a family was $56,272, according to the census. About 25 percent of residents over the age of 25 have a bachelors’ degrees or higher. The average commute time runs about 23 minutes. The median value of an owner-occupied home is $185,400.
The city boasts three school districts to choose from as well as the 35-acre expanse called Konkel Park, which contains two softball fields, four lighted and fenced-in volleyball courts. Originally called Kinnikennick, the township was created by an act of the territorial legislature in 1839, though two years later its name changed to Greenfield. The town transformed to a city form of government in 1957 as a migration from Milwaukee began to create the first ring of Milwaukee’s suburbs as we see them today.
