Spot A Clock: Centennial Park in West Milwaukee

This month’s ‘Spot a Clock’ is the public clock located in Centennial Park in West Milwaukee. The park is located at the southwest corner of Beloit Road and Greenfield Avenue.


Centennial Park is an example of a “Pocket Park.” Pocket parks are small public areas that are often irregular or small parcels of land that cannot be developed for other uses. They provide communities with opportunities to introduce small-scale public spaces without the infrastructure or costs associated with a larger park. They can hold sculpture gardens, skateboard-friendly features, or in this case, a clock.

This particular park was dedicated in 1968 as a way to beautify the area. These parks are also often used to provide memorials to veterans or others who have sacrificed for the community.

This particular clock was produced by the Verdin Clock Company of Cincinnati, Ohio. Verdin Clock Company has been producing and servicing public clocks since 1842.
