About the Organization Traditional, hardworking, family-oriented - the cornerstones of Midwestern culture are alive and well, but there's something a little different about Kaukauna. Time-honored values are counterbalanced by an open-minded approach to problem-solving, identifying solutions, and planning for the future. While the city supports a simple life - sweet and uncomplicated - the door remains open for 'the simple life' to evolve with each generation.

Today, the City of Kaukauna is home to over 16,000 people with its own full-time Police, Fire and Rescue services and a municipally owned electric and water utility - Kaukauna Utilities. Kaukauna boasts a 350-acre Industrial Park Network, complete with rail and heavy truck access.

Beyond playgrounds, parks and trails, Kaukauna is a 'Bird City' with more than 450 acres of protected greenspace and popular public nature programming, including Eagle Days. Our proximity to the Fox River affords our residents with numerous recreational opportunities such as the Historic Grignon Mansion, the 1000 Islands Environmental Center, sports fields, a public swimming pool, and a public library.

City-sponsored events held in the Central Business District include a weekly outdoor music series - Live! from Hydro Park, Fox Firecracker 5k Run/Walk, and the Downtown Farmer's Market June through October. With such a variety of activities available, it should not come as a surprise that Kaukauna is also known as 'The Friendly City.'
