Apartments could replace River Falls Family Fun Center in Greenfield

A longtime family recreation center in Greenfield has closed and a $59 million, 257-unit residential development is being proposed for the location just west of Konkel Park.

Milwaukee-based Ogden & Company is proposing to construct a two-building, market-rate multi-family development at 5401 W. Layton Ave., according to Greenfield Community Development Manager Kristi Porter.  

It’s the current site of River Falls Family Fun Center, which announced its closure Wednesday on Facebook. 

A representative for River Falls could not immediately be reached for an interview. An outgoing voicemail message said the business had closed. 

The business was no longer able to operate due to health and family issues and wanted to sell the land for a project that would benefit the community as a whole, according to city documents.
