Welcome to our website! Uptown Crossing Neighborhood Association (UCNA) is a sub-neighborhood association of the larger Sherman Park Community Association in Milwaukee, Wisconsin.  Our goal is to help organize our little corner of Sherman Park to better meet the needs of our area as well as the larger association.

Uptown Community Garden of Peace

Our latest project is the new Uptown Community Garden of Peace at 2321-2325 N. 45th St. Right next to Walgreen’s on North Avenue.

The garden is dedicated to peace and harmony on the streets of Milwaukee. We are calling for an end to the violence that has hurt so many people!

Join us for a community meeting and discussion in response to the recent thefts and burglaries in our neighborhood.

An officer from Milwaukee Police District 3 and Mandy from Safe & Sound will be there to address questions.

The meeting is this Monday August 12th at 6:30 PM. Please bring lawn chairs and meet in front of Shar & Peter’s house, 2466 N. 47th St.

We had a wonderful time at our 1st annual Garden Picnic at the Uptown Community Gardens of Peace. It’s been a long journey, but our garden is up and running with 8 gorgeous beds, a new sign and newly planted trees.

The Uptown Garden is dedicated to peace and harmony on the streets of Milwaukee. We are calling for an end to the violence that has hurt so many people!

At the picnic we dedicated a tree called “Russell’s Hope” for the for Russell Setum who was gunned down on Wright and 48th a year ago. His mother joined us at the picnic to cut the ribbon on the new cherry tree.

We would like to thank all of our gardeners and garden organizers, especially Ann Knoedler, without whom this would not be the beautiful success it has become. We would also like to thank our neighbor Walgreen’s on North Avenue, Milwaukee Urban Gardens (MUG), Common Ground of Wisconsin and Reflo – Sustainable Water Solutions for all of their help!

We welcome you to visit our garden at any time. Our garden’s address is 2321-2325 N.
