The Future New Berlin Activity & Recreation Center

Each year the Recreation Department offers hundreds of programs, activities, and community events. These range from summer Day Camp to ballroom dance, cooking to gymnastics, and baton twirling to yoga.  The staff team at New Berlin Recreation seeks to deliver high quality programming where thousands of New Berlin residents can meet new people, have fun, and try new activities.  We are happy to announce in 2022, we will be moving the majority of our indoor programs to a new facility— the New Berlin Activity & Recreation Center, located at 15321 W National Avenue!
