Hoffman Family Aquatic Center To Open June 7

The Black River Falls Parks & Recreation Department announces that the Hoffman Family Aquatic Center will open for the season on Monday June 7.

Thursday – Sunday                 12pm-6pm

Black River Falls Parks and Recreation will continue to recruit and train lifeguards to minimize inconveniences and maximize safety.  If there are questions, patrons should contact the Black River Falls Parks and Recreation Department at (715) 284-9246.
