You Make it Possible to Build Community

The existing Rice Lake community pool was built in 1978. The community pool has given the Rice Lake area an environment for swimming lessons, lifeguarding classes and advanced swimmer training. It was also home to many athletes and community club members who considered the pool a huge facet of their lives. Unfortunately, the existing pool needs extensive repairs, and can no longer serve the expanding needs of our community.

Help Us Rebuild the Rice Lake Pool Legacy

The Rice Lake Aquatics and Recreation Center (RLARC), a community non-profit organization, has joined forces with the Rice Lake Area School District to construct a new two pool aquatic facility. Additionally, the City of Rice Lake has committed two million dollars to renovate the existing pool into a gym and walking track. Combined this will result in the first ever community center in Rice Lake.

A Single Donation Produces Multiple Opportunities

Project costs and fundraising goals

Rice Lake Area School District has agreed to provide the land for the new facility and to lease the facility covering a large portion of the operating costs of the facility. The RLARC is seeking to raise 4.5 Million to make this project a reality and to meet community programing needs.
