La Crosse Park and Rec closing buildings, limiting crowd sizes



The guidelines for limiting crowd sizes during the coronavirus outbreak are leading to many cancellations of park and rec activities in La Crosse. 

The southside and Black River Beach neighborhood centers will close on Wednesday, and are scheduled to stay closed until May 11th. 

Exceptions will be made for outside reservations. 

The Green Island Ice Arena will close Wednesday, and remain closed at least through March 31st. 

The Pump House and Forest Hills Golf Course will follow their own guidelines, but the state says no gatherings of 50 or more people will be allowed for the next 8 weeks.   

Most youth and adult programs scheduled by Park and Rec for the rest of March and April are cancelled, but the All-City Sign-Up is still set for April 18th, by phone or on-line only.
