What we're about

Meet other Milwaukee dads -- stay-at-home dads, working dads, all active and engaged fathers from in and around the Milwaukee metro area -- to socialize and interact with other guys who enjoy spending quality time with their kids.

Our primary goal is to form an inclusive and active community of dads so we can do activities together and take advantage of the amazing resources that Milwaukee has to offer. Organized meetup events are planned at local parks, playgrounds, museums, play gyms, zoos, and pretty much any other place that will welcome us.

Milwaukee Dads Group is part of the City Dads Group, a nationwide community of fathers dedicated to being active in our children’s lives and, by example, redefining what it means to be a dad in the 21st century. We have groups centered around major metropolitan areas throughout the United States. Learn more at www.citydadsgroup.com ( https://citydadsgroup.com/ ).

Please note this group is strictly for Dads and dads-to-be. We want this group to be a comfortable place for Dads to learn and talk about anything parent related.

Playgroup @ Southridge Mall indoor playground.

Southridge Mall

It’s been snowing since October, so let's take it inside and let the kids run in the play area at Southridge Mall. There is also a train ride available for a small fee. Once the kids are done playing, you’ll have a great opportunity to do any holiday shopping you need to do. Even this close to the holidays, Southridge generally isn’t overcrowded at this time of day.
