NEW AND YOUNG SPACES IN WISCONSIN AND
MINNESOTA'S SWELLING CITIES
BY Skylar Sjöberg
f the Midwest is " America's Heartland, " the
eastern corner of the Upper Midwest is the nation's
pulminary artery. The land that makes up
Wisconsin and Minnesota folds its deep forests,
mountainous formations and wide meadows around
thousands of lakes-26,000 lakes, to be exact-
and 153,000 miles of rivers and streams. In fact,
Minnesota is home to the most named natural lakes
in the country, followed by Wisconsin, according to
World Population Review's 2022 state rankings.
Beyond the water, these adjacent states are
agriculture and mining industry centers, with a

landscape that begs exploration in and outside
the big cities. The shape of the land is a reminder
to locals and all who visit it of why it's hard to
beat the great outdoors of the Upper Midwest.
New meetings and event spaces are cropping
up in Brookfield, Wisconsin, and Prior
Lake, Minnesota, to facilitate gatherings and
still-young spaces from the start of the pandemic
are seeing meeting profs return to their
facilities. Let's take a look.
BROOKFIELD, WISCONSIN
Brookfield started with a developmental standard
and philosophy that has turned the city of just
under 40,000 residents into flourishing green yards,
pathways and pastures. This guiding concept for
building allots for space to be left intentionally open
and landscaped, or simply untouched, and it's an
expectation both residents and businesses respect.
The city of Brookfield is a particularly bucolic
community, a parkland haven with an innovative
and frequently expanding and upgraded citywide
trail system, known as the Greenway Trail System.
Brookfield knows how to get outside. Yet it also
boasts impressive, idyllic indoor settings for meetings,
events and bleisure in a prime location, as the
largest western suburb of Milwaukee.
