Southgate Playfield

 

Project Description

The full playfield renovation included asphalt removal and the installation of a new natural turf playfield, shade trees, a walking loop, playground equipment, basketball hoops, and a splash play area.  New and upgraded site amenities were also added, including lighting, benches, and trash receptacles.

 The fieldhouse was upgraded in 2021.

Public Art in the Playfield

Milwaukee Recreation and Arts @ Large partnered with local artist Nova Czarnecki to work with the neighborhood on a mural for Southgate Playfield!
