PLEASE NOTE: Adobe Acrobat Reader is needed for downloaded cards to work with full functionality. Only the color version of the card has full functionality in Acrobat Reader. You can still print and send in the card. If desired, download the latest version of Reader at


2.  To earn prizes, complete the activities displayed on the PARKticipation card. For each activity you complete, click, tap or draw an X or checkmark over the square. For downloaded cards, remember to save your card with a unique name so it can be easily retrieved and submitted.


Three of the squares feature activities held in partnership with Milwaukee Recreation (MKE/REC). To check off these squares, please take part in the activity with MKE/REC. These activities require registration; please register at For more information, contact MKE/REC at (414) 475-8180.
