Summer Playgrounds Program

Milwaukee Recreation will provide enrichment activities, play opportunities, and free meals at playground sites across the city beginning June 12, 2023 (for kids ages 6-17). Due to federal regulations, all provided meals are served seated and must be consumed by youth at the playground.

All playgrounds are operated as a “free drop-in” program. Though locations are staffed and provide many enriching games and activities for youth, general supervision is only provided for youth who choose to stay on site. The playgrounds program is not a substitute for child care or similar attendance/registration-driven programs.

Please click here for playground locations and hours, as well as additional program opportunities that will be available at each site. We look forward to seeing you this summer!

Inclusion Services Policy

Milwaukee Recreation is committed to creating and promoting inclusion within all facilities and programs that the department manages. Through the Inclusion Services Policy and supporting practices, we aim to ensure that everyone has access to the benefits of quality parks and recreation.

If a reasonable accommodation is needed for a participant to fully enjoy a recreation class, submit an ADA Accommodation Request by clicking this link: ADA Accommodation Request / Inclusion Complaint Form. If registering in person, please indicate that an accommodation is needed to the Milwaukee Recreation team member processing your registration.

Once your request is received, you will be contacted by a member of the Recreation team to discuss the specific accommodation needs prior to the start of the class.

Milwaukee Recreation needs two weeks to process accommodation requests.
