Welcome to Elm Grove
Nicknamed “The Grove,” this quaint and tree-filled village is best known for its strong sense of community. Block parties and year-round celebrations such as Memorial Day parades, Fourth of July Games, Children’s Halloween Party, Breakfast with Santa, and Easter egg hunts are all organized by its active volunteer association.
Named America’s best suburb in 2014 by Business Insider and #7 of the top fifty safest cities in Wisconsin by safewise.com, Elm Grove is a charming neighborhood truly dedicated to its environment. Having become one of Wisconsin’s “Bird Cities” in 2011, it is committed to creating a sanctuary for birds and wildlife.
Elm Grove’s schools are known to be some of the best in the area and there are many recreational programs and volunteer opportunities for extracurricular activities. It comes as no surprise that many of its residents have purchased their family homesteads from their parents so that they can raise their children in the idyllic community they grew up in.
