Milwaukee County sponsors recreational activities designed for people with disabilities at two facilities located in county parks in South Milwaukee and Wauwatosa called the Wil-O-Way Recreation Centers. Recreation Programs are offered over the Spring, Summer, and Fall seasons. Programming is available to individuals with disabilities ages 16 and up through the Wil-O-Way Recreation Center. Recreation gives participants the opportunity to socialize with their peers and have fun while learning new skills. Activities are planned for weekdays and weekends, afternoons and evenings, and include exciting offerings such as bowling, ceramics, cooking classes, community outings and Friday night dances!  Every session brings a plethora of new opportunities being offered in six different locations throughout Milwaukee County for you to pick and choose from. Grab a program guide today! Activities including arts, crafts, life skills, clubs, sports, and music are offered. A dance is held at one of the facilities usually every Friday evening. Additional activities that take place in the community including bowling, swimming, golf, sailing and more. Three program sessions are offered throughout the year: summer, fall and spring.
