About Recreation

Welcome to the Recreation and Community Services Department. It is our mission to provide community services and life-long learning opportunities through recreation, education, and fitness programs to enhance the quality of life for residents of the Shorewood community. We accomplish this through a wide variety of programming that includes enrichment and fitness classes for children, families, adults and seniors; a Community Fitness Center, Bright Beginnings Preschool, an aquatics program, special community programming, facilities rental and more.
Update on Shorewood High School's construction: 
All of the SOUTH Doors (facing the parking lot) will be shut and locked. These are in an active "hard hat area."
The East and West Doors will be shut and locked, but may be used for deliveries or handicap accessibility.
The Front Lawn Doors (Main Doors to the North) will be OPEN. There will be hand sanitizer at this location.
If you would like to come to the Recreation Department, please use the Main Doors on the North side of campus. This will be in place until the end of August.  We will then reevaluate what doors should be open for the school year.
