Bringing Family & Community Together Through Recreation Since 1934!


Welcome to WA-WM Recreation & Community Services Summer Greetings from your Director……

People have often asked our staff….what do you do? The truth is there isn’t a simple answer. Here are some of the things that your Recreation and Community Services Department does for the West Allis and West Milwaukee Communities. 1. Provide value added programs that strengthen our community image and create a sense of belonging by fostering social, intellectual, physical and emotional growth in children, youth, adults and older adults. 2. Strengthen safety and security by providing safe environments for recreation and provide leadership in the community through collaboration and problem solving. 3. Support economic development by providing programs and spaces that attract businesses and residents, provide over 750 part time jobs, and help to generate income for local businesses. 4. Provide experiences – programs and self-facilitated recreation provide a variety of benefits to individuals as well as the community at large, and recreation experiences are important for personal enjoyment and growth. 5. Celebrate our growing diversity and promote physical and emotional health and wellness. This summer we encourage all West Allis and West Milwaukee residents to take advantage of your Recreation and Community Services Department in the manner that suits you the best. We welcome you to get active and get involved so you can see all that it is that we “do.” Shelly Strasser Director of Recreation and Community Services
