The Village of Waterford is a bustling Exurban Community of Milwaukee. With 4 lanes, State Highway 36 connects Waterford’s trade area population of 46,886 to the center of Milwaukee in a short 37-minute drive, Waterford is far enough away to feel like it’s part of Wisconsin’s Rural Agricultural Heritage, yet close enough to enjoy all of the cultural amenities of the Big City.

Waterford is an incredibly safe community, with one of the lowest crime rates in the state. It has an amazing school system, boasting some of the highest test scores and Advanced Placement Credits earned in the region. It’s placement along Lake Tichigan and the Fox River ensures that residents and visitors alike will be able to enjoy the great outdoors along the water. The Community has many Village and County Parks, and is a short drive from the Bong State Recreational Area.
