About the Neighborhood

The Layton Boulevard West neighborhoods of Silver City, Burnham Park, and Layton Park are conveniently located between Miller Park (home of the Brewers), the Mitchell Park Domes, and is also a short distance from the freeway and only a  7 minute drive to downtown. With the Menomonee Valley right in our backyard, neighbors can easily walk to a Brewers game, enjoy a bike ride on the Hank Aaron State Trail , fish the Menomonee River, and soon will be able to celebrate the opening of the newest location of the Urban Ecology Center, which will provide countless outdoor and environmental education activities for children and adults alike.
