Check This Out: Lawn Sports Edition

Autumn is upon us, but that doesn't mean you have to stop borrowing summer equipment from the Urban Ecology Center. Members of the Urban Ecology Center have unlimited access to a variety of tools and games to help keep you active all year round. Take advantage of the beautiful weather while it's still here!

This post was written by guest blogger and community member Kevin Jacobson. Thanks, Kevin! If you'd like to contribute to our blog, contact Jeff McAvoy at This email address is being protected from spambots. You need JavaScript enabled to view it.

Here's a glimpse at some of the lawn sports equipment we has to offer. Lawn sports equipment can be borrowed for up to three days and taken anywhere just like the other equipment in our lending program.


  1. Bocce Ball Set - Plenty of green space in Milwaukee to chase that pallino around (the pallino is the target ball in case you were wondering).
  2. Badminton Set - Bird, birdie, shuttlecock? Whatever it is, just make sure it doesn't hit the ground!
  3. Tennis Racquets - Six tennis courts next to the Riverside branch are prime real estate to become the next Serena Williams.
  4. Disc Golf Set - Estabrook Park in MIlwaukee has a full 18 hole course. Take a break at the beer garden if you're 21 and over.
  5. Kites - Veterans Park is a perfect place for takeoff, and yes that's a seven and half foot shark!
  6. Croquet Set - Not just a game for fancy garden parties.

Remember to check out the entirety of summer equipment we have available at all three branches. Availability may vary from branch to branch, so please call ahead to reserve equipment. Click here to learn more.

Have a favorite lawn sports game or any other adventure equipment that you no longer use? Please contact Mike Larson at This email address is being protected from spambots. You need JavaScript enabled to view it. to inquire about donating it to the Center and sharing it with our community!
