Twilight Centers


We know how integral our Twilight Centers are to providing safe spaces for our young people. Twilight Centers offer programming and extended hours at select schools so young people in the city have a safe place to go during the evenings for free.

This fall, we invite young people to visit our six high school Twilight Centers (ages 12-18) and our one middle school Twilight Center (ages 10-15) on Monday, Wednesday, and Friday evenings for board games, e-sports, open gym shootaround, and more! Twilight is open to MPS and non-MPS students alike.

Between mask mandates, temperature checks, physical distancing, room capacity limits, and cleaning protocols, Milwaukee Recreation is taking every precaution so young people throughout the community can make time with their friends, interact with our staff, and find a safe & fun way to leave the house. Watch our video above for a full walk-through of our safety measures at each Twilight Center.

Note: There will be no Family Nights. All pools remain closed.
