City of Green Bay


Green Bay, the city by the bay, was founded in 1634 by the French explorer, Jean Nicolet. Today Green Bay is a thriving Great Lakes seaport linked to international shipping lanes, rail lines and interstate highways. Our city is one with a rich heritage and the promise of an even brighter future.

Green Bay's 2015 estimated population was 105,207, however, Brown County's overall population - including Howard, DePere, Allouez and Ashwaubenon is 258,718(2015). The climate here is continental, with four distinct seasons. Summers are warm and humid and the autumns are cool; while winter is snowy and relatively cold.

The city and it's people are proud of their professional football team, the Green Bay Packers. Their home stadium, Lambeau Field, has a seating capacity of 72,515 (that number is always increasing as new sky-boxes and more seats are added yearly) and is sold out for all home games on a season-ticket basis.
