History of Muttland Meadows
Joseph Uihlein Jr. was frustrated and angry. He could not find a place to run his beloved poodle, Jose. They had been chased out of the public parks for the last time. Joseph said, "This is gross discrimination. We can't put up with this." So Joseph decided to start a dog park of his own. In 1978, Joseph Uihlein Jr. purchased seven acres off Green Bay Rd. directly across from Lime Kiln Park for just that purpose.
The Uihlein's, Joseph and Georganna thought it would be an ideal place for Jose, who only had a "postage stamp sized backyard" to play in. But then Joseph said; "What the hell; we'll do it for everyone." Greg Kuehn, a landscape architect from Treetops Design, Inc. of Grafton, did the planning of Muttland Meadows. After listening to his friends talk about their dream for the project Greg was able to capture just the right "doggie" atmosphere. Hence: Muttland Meadows.
