The Blackstone Valley Boys & Girls Club is located on the banks of the Blackstone River in Blackstone, Massachusetts, on the border of Rhode Island. The park has 11 acres of land equipped with a 12,000-square-foot gymnasium, newly renovated outdoor swimming pool complete with water features, rock climbing wall, and water slide, which will be installed in May 2017. Our members also enjoy a playground, outdoor multi-use sports complex, wall ball area, outdoor basketball courts, batting cage, baseball field, soccer field, and an 1811 granite Stone House recreation center, all in a charming setting along the Blackstone River.
Today, we have more than 1,200 members who utilize the club for year-round activities. Our summer program, after-school programs, and athletic programs all incorporate the Boys & Girls Clubs of America's strategy of promoting learning and cultural enrichment through a variety of activities. Our programs for children have truly become the "Positive Place for Kids".
The Club offers activities such as ice skating, basketball, soccer, and street hockey. Our school age, drop-in, and vacation programs provide our members with a place to belong when they are not in school. In our recreational summer program, members can participate in swimming, fishing, activities, and tournaments. Members have the opportunity to socialize and form new friendships with other members in the surrounding communities.
