Milwaukee Public School outdoor facilities are available for use by the community through the Outdoor Facility Permit Application process. To secure an outdoor facility, please view the resources below and complete the appropriate Outdoor Facility Permit Application for your request. The completed application must be submitted a minimum of two weeks prior to the reservation date to ensure proper processing. Every effort is made to honor permit requests. However, please note the priority for outdoor facility usage is as follows:
- First Priority: Milwaukee Public Schools
- Second Priority: Return Permit Groups requesting the same dates, times, and locations as previous year
- Third Priority: New Permit Groups
The permit application process is facilitated through the Milwaukee Public Schools Department of Recreation and Community Services.
Fall 2019 Outdoor Facility Permits
If you permitted with us in Fall 2018, you have first rights to the same dates, times, and locations you permitted for the upcoming Fall 2019 season. To secure your reservation for Fall 2019, your permit application(s) must be received in the Permit Office by Friday, Aug. 2 at 5 p.m.
On Monday, Aug. 5 all sites will open up to the public. All new permit applications will also be reviewed at this time. Invoices will be issued shortly after.
Any unpaid invoices from past permitting with Milwaukee Recreation revokes your renewal rights to all Fall 2019 permits. If you have any unpaid invoices, they must be paid by Friday, Aug. 2 in order for you to retain your renewal rights.
How to Make a Payment
Acceptable payments include cash, check, money order, and credit card (Visa or Mastercard). Payments can be mailed in, dropped off, or called in (credit card payments only). Full payment must be received by our office a minimum of one week prior to the reservation date.
