Milwaukee Recreation to celebrate renovations at two playfields

This June, Milwaukee Recreation is celebrating the completed renovations of two sparkling neighborhood play spaces, Stark Playfield and Carmen Playfield! The public is invited to attend and take part in each ceremony alongside local leaders and Milwaukee Recreation staff.

Milwaukee Recreation led multiple on-site community engagement events and gathered additional input via online surveys.

“We are thrilled to see the completion of these two playfields,” Milwaukee Recreation director Lynn Greb said. “The neighborhood residents provided crucial input to help shape these spaces and we couldn’t be more proud of the end results. These new playfields are stunning, vibrant, and welcoming spaces that children and families will enjoy for years to come.”

Each playfield now features upgraded walking loops, age-appropriate playground equipment, a splash pad, shade structures, and a multi-purpose field. New and upgraded amenities were also added, including lighting, benches, and trash receptacles. Carmen Playfield also includes basketball practice play areas, an Aventus basketball wall, and Tuj Lub courts (Tuj Lub is a popular game within the area). Stark Playfield features updated basketball and tennis court facilities.
