Emigh Playfield

Reimagine Emigh Playfield by completing our survey on the proposed wheel park here!

The survey is open until Nov. 7.

Milwaukee Recreation and the Bay View Neighborhood Association are proposing a change to the northwest portion of Emigh Playfield to include the addition of Milwaukee’s first and only Wheel Park.

Milwaukee Recreation held a  Community Engagement Session on Saturday, Oct. 16, allowing members of the neighborhood to talk with staff, provide feedback, and view renderings of the proposed enhancement to Emigh Playfield (see renderings and boards from the community engagement session below). It is not too late to provide input; please complete the survey above and let us know if you are in support of a wheel park!

Wheel parks provide families with a safe and legal space for wheel sports including BMX, skateboards, scooters and skates.

What is a Wheel Plaza?

A Wheel Plaza provides families with a safe and legal space for wheel sports. 

What will the Wheel Plaza at Emigh look like?

A street style park will be created, involving the use of urban obstacles with stairs, ledges, rails, and other obstacles. Users perform tricks around, onto or over these obstacles.
