Background: The Milwaukee Public Schools Department of Recreation and Community Services (Milwaukee Recreation) was established in 1911 to enrich the lives of Milwaukee's youth, teens, adults, and seniors through recreational and educational opportunities.

Throughout the years, the department has worked to position itself as a leading provider of community recreation services. A team of 105 full-time employees and nearly 1,600 part-time employees hired annually as instructors, leaders, field attendants, umpires, and referees work to program more than 100 schools and community locations on an annual basis.

Primary functions of the department include Before & Afterschool Programs; Citywide Programs; Youth Sports & Interscholastic Athletics; Playgrounds & Community Centers; and Operations. During the winter/spring of 2024, Milwaukee Recreation provided multifaceted programming for individuals of all ages throughout the city of Milwaukee.
