Milwaukee Recreation is on a mission to ensure that all members of our community have access to high-quality outdoor recreation facilities. In June, the department continued its citywide playfield renovation project at two locations, Green Bay Playfield (3872 N. 8th St.) and Franklin Square Playfield (2643 N. 13th St.).
On Friday, June 25, community members, neighborhood partners, and staff came together at Green Bay Playfield to celebrate another critical step in the renovation process. The revitalized playfield will include new basketball and tennis courts, a splash pad, playground equipment, a seating area, green space, and more!
