|Washington Park- Urban Ecology Center|
I've been a member for several months, but we never borrowed equipment. One of the membership benefits is that you can borrow all sorts of equipment from all three of the centers, which are located at Riverside Park, Menomonee Valley, and Washington Park. You also get their newsletter, chock full of fun ideas, events, and up to date information about what's happening in the centers. A membership costs $25 for an individual, $35 for families, and just $12 if you're a college student.

The ice rink is on the lagoon which is frozen now. If you're a beginning skater, you can take a chair from indoors and use it for balance out on the ice. It turned out to be a big help for Omar. Later he got confidence and parked the chair. You can also play hockey- they have sticks and pucks too.
