Welcome to the City of Glendale, one of Wisconsin's premier communities! Glendale is a dynamic community that maintains its own identity just 4 miles from the City of Milwaukee. It is a city with a rich history, excellent schools, fascinating architecture, quality healthcare and a variety of recreation opportunities.
Located on a narrow corridor of 5.7 square miles to the west of Fox Point, Whitefish Bay and Shorewood, Glendale has grown steadily since its separation from the old Town of Milwaukee.
Glendale is one of 35 suburban communities that surround the City of Milwaukee and is less than 10 miles north of downtown Milwaukee, connected via Interstate I-43. Its proximity to many Milwaukee County facilities and its separated suburban location give Glendale a distinct advantage in the metropolitan area.
