The Wood River Aquatic Center may be the city’s most popular attraction, but it’s far from the only thing the Park & Recreation Department oversees during the summer months.

He says adult leagues are also filling up, as are the various youth camps. A new driving range at Belk Park is nearly complete, with a new building and netting in place. Repairs on the slide at the Aquatic Center are needed, and Woody hopes to have that done by opening day on May 24.
