This is the time to enjoy your summer with your family. There are many things to do. Sport activities and family get togethers are common. What is left of our County Parks is still usable for family use. You may have to bring your own toilet paper and hand soap due to budget cuts, and some park restrooms are condemned by the Milwaukee Health Department. Take advantage of the beautiful weather and do some activities with your family. If it is too hot outside, then go do an indoor activity. Go see a movie, visit a museum, go to Betty Brinn, go to a baseball game or do other activities that you enjoy. Swimming pools are now open to use. Softball is very popular with many people. Milwaukee Public School Recreation Division has many activities for all to enjoy.
