Eble Park and Gardens History

"Florence Eble in the Garden" - Painting by Everett W. Powell

In 1879 Mary Eble purchased farmland in Brookfield, Wisconsin, along Bluemound Road in Waukesha County, following the death of her husband, Andrew Eble. Their son, Emery, married Julia Anna Winzenreid and they worked the dairy farm. In 1885 they built an eleven-room house and raised twelve children on the property.

Florence Eble, the last surviving sibling, cared for the land until 1988 when she donated the remaining 33 acres to Waukesha County. Florence agreed to the county’s suggestion of using the property as a park and home for a new ice rink to benefit the public, especially children. Today the park and ice arena bear the Eble name.

Florence passed away in 1995 at the age of 91. The original barn and farmhouse have been removed, but Florence’s beloved gardens remain.

The Gardens at Eble Park are open to the public to inspire, educate and enjoy! The produce from the vegetable garden is donated to local food pantries.
