Frame Park was the third park developed in Waukesha, with land donated to the city by Andrew and Emma Frame. This beautiful park site lies along the banks of the Fox River between Barstow Street and Moreland Boulevard. Frame Park is extensively landscaped. The Fox River divides the park’s landscapes into two distinct areas. The east side of the park is quite formal with spectacularly planted specimen trees, as well as perennial and shrub beds. The west side of the park emphasizes a more natural river edge landscape, which also utilizes flowering plant beds and individual trees.
