Milwaukee Recreation Continues Citywide Playfield Revitalization Undertaking


July 6, 2021

Milwaukee Recreation is committed to ensuring that all members of our community have access to quality outdoor recreational facilities. In June, the department continued its citywide pitch renovation project at two locations, Green Bay Playfield (3872 N. 8th St.) and Franklin Square Playfield (2643 N. 13th St.).

On Friday June 25th, community members, neighborhood partners and employees gathered at the Green Bay Playfield to celebrate another important step in the renovation process. The revitalized playing field will include new basketball and tennis courts, a splash pad, play equipment, a seating area, green spaces and more!
