Gardens of Kohler

We invite you to experience a true garden community, from the lush gardens of The American Club® to The Shops at Woodlake and the championship golf courses of Blackwolf Run® and Whistling Straits®. Enjoy all the natural areas that weave throughout quaint neighborhoods by taking a guided or self-guided tour.

The seeds for the gardens of Kohler were planted in 1913 when Walter J. Kohler, Sr., traveled to Europe to study garden cities. He then worked with the Olmsted Brothers, whose landscape firm designed Central Park in New York City, to plan the green spaces that beautify the Village of Kohler and Kohler Co. campus – a 50-year master plan.

The idea blossomed for decades, and a second 50-year plan of growth, under guidelines established by The Frank Lloyd Wright Foundation, was completed in 1977. This plan actively called for continued community development in the Village of Kohler with a focus on environmental sensitivity, tree plantings and woodland and wetland preservation, making the village an ideal community for Kohler Co. associates, residents and visitors alike.
