Shopping at Richfield Liquor means supporting the city’s parks
Effective March 17, all Richfield Municipal Liquor stores will reduce hours due to the COVID-19 outbreak. At this time, all stores will be open daily from 11 a.m. to 6 p.m.
Richfield owns and operates four municipal liquor stores. Every year, profits from Richfield Liquor are reinvested into the city’s parks. Annually, it accounts for approximately $450,000 in park improvements.
Our parks would not be in such good condition without this additional funding.
A good year for Richfield Liquor means a good year for Richfield parks.
Park improvements and additions that have benefited from liquor store funding can be seen all over the city, but the most recent can be seen at Washington Park, the outdoor pool and Veterans Memorial Park.
In June 2017, the city constructed eight new pickleball courts at Washington Park. Most pickleball players have to use tennis courts that also function as pickleball courts, which make the courts less manageable for senior and younger players. The new courts are pickleball-specific and were partially funded through liquor store profits.
The community has always loved the outdoor pool, but a couple years ago the facility was starting to look its age. It lacked many of the features of other metro area pools and the bathhouse had seen better days. Thanks in part to liquor store funds, the bathhouse was renovated and a zero-depth pool was added.
Lastly, the new play feature at Veterans Memorial Park was made possible through liquor store profits. If you drive by the park in the summer it is rare to not see a flock of children enjoying the play feature.
Again, shopping at Richfield Liquor means supporting the city’s parks. Your purchasing decision ensures that Richfield's parks keep looking nice.
