Milwaukee's New Courts

Activate MKE Now

| People + Space |

ActivateMKE is a collaborative mission comprised of dedicated Milwaukeeans. Our mission is to connect the community by activating people and unused space through the idea of sports and fitness, thus providing focal points where all can gather.

Our project: ActivateMKE is helping lead the charge with other passionate Milwaukee visionaries to paint the basketball Courts at Tiefenthaler Park in Midtown Milwaukee. Last summer, ActivateMKE, in collaboration with the People’s Flag of Milwaukee, Lake Valley Camp, and Our Mecca Group, was able to follow through on its promise to renovate the basketball courts at Tiefenthaler Park in Midtown, Milwaukee. The two courts were given brand new nets, rims, and court lines.
