Park Recreation Activities and Aquatic Center to Remain Closed through June

May 26, 2020

Due to the COVID-19 pandemic, all city sponsored activities in Richland Center city parks are suspended through the month of June.

The one exception will be the fireworks, which will take place as scheduled, June 27th.  Tunderfest will not take place this year, but the fireworks will go on, WITH SOCIAL DISTANCING IN PLACE.

We’re asking people to view the fireworks from home, where possible, and we will be requesting permission for viewing of the fireworks from some area parking lots as well – a follow-up announcement will be made on this point when more information is available.

At some point in June, we will make a decision regarding a later opening date for the aquatic center and the resumption of youth activities and adult sports leagues.

Thank you for your cooperation and understanding.
