Kids to the Park Day


Enjoy these activities outdoors with your family! 

In cooperation with the National Park Trust, we are striving to achieve getting more kids outdoors to enjoy our parks.

Below are a number of activities to play in the park while learning about nature.

Join us on May 9th to celebrate Kids to the Park Day by joining our

WPRF Virtual Family Fun 5K Run!

For the past six years WPRF Cool School, before and afterschool programs have participated in an all site family fun 5k run (or 1 mile walk). Approximately 800 students from the City of Waukesha learn about character development while training for a 5k run/walk each year. This year with the need to keep our families safe, we have decided to change our course and offer a virtual family run to all members throughout our community.
