Root Common

Root Common, a triangular green space located at the crossroads of Wauwatosa and Harwood Avenues, has become a year-round gathering space for the Wauwatosa community.  From sitting and enjoying with an ice cream cone or frozen yogurt to the setting of our tree lighting, this area is usually bustling with activity.

Pocket Park

Pocket Park offers shade, benches and a quiet reprieve just feet from the hustle of The Village commercial district.
