La Crosse pools, beaches close for the year

La Crosse’s pools and beaches are closing for the year.

The Northside Community Pool and both the Pettibone and Black River beaches closed this weekend. Coordinators say the summer went well for all locations.

“Here in August, it starts to die down a little bit. A lot more families are taking vacations before school starts up, but overall the weather’s been great for us and we’ve had an awesome turnout,” said City of La Crosse Aquatic Coordinator Ryan Miller.

Erickson Pool is scheduled to close this coming weekend.

Currently, Erickson is open from noon to 1:00 p.m. for family and lap swims, and 1:00 p.m. through 6:30 p.m. for an open swim. Those times are dependent on the weather though.
