The City of La Crosse Parks, Recreation, and Forestry Department, in partnership with the Veterans Memorial Pool Campaign (VMPC) and nine neighborhood businesses, proudly presents:  Taste of Campbell Rd – Business Open House and Pool Tours. 

On Saturday, May 18th from 10am-12pm the public is invited to a sneak peek of the Veterans Memorial Pool and to visit nine new and long-standing businesses that are nearby.  Stroll the neighborhood for a complimentary taste or gift at each business, to see the updated design renderings on display, and see the progress of the pool facility under construction. 

Businesses will have special discounts on food and merchandise as well as treats including free coffee, tea, cookies, popcorn, pita with hummus, candy, stickers, and even a raffle!  A limited amount of special discount cards for neighborhood businesses will also be available for a free-will donation.  City staff and campaign volunteers will be available to share information and answer questions. 

A short kick-off presentation and press conference at 10am inside the Eagle’s Nest will provide an update on the project, what to expect this summer once the pool opens, and community fundraising campaign progress. 

Additionally, the Veterans Memorial Pool Campaign will be sharing the progress of the community fundraising efforts—including details about the over 400 individual donations received to date, a generous $20,000 gift from the Russell L. & Vera M. Smith Foundation, and on reaching over 76% of our $500,000 goal.    

As with the Veterans Memorial Pool, persons of all ages, abilities, and from all areas of La Crosse are welcome!
