Wading Pools to open June 1st

Minneapolis Wading Pools to Begin Opening June 1

 

The Minneapolis Park and Recreation Board (MPRB) will begin opening their 65 popular wading pools on Sat., June 1.

 

Many wading pools located in Minneapolis parks will open on Sat., June 1 and be open through Labor Day, Sept. 2. However, for the safety of park patrons and Minneapolis Public Schools (MPS) students, wading pools located in parks adjacent to a MPS building will open Wed., June 5, the day MPS students are released for summer, and remain open through Sun., Aug. 25, the day before MPS students return for the 2013-2014 school year. The full list of MPRB wading pools and their scheduled opening / closing dates is found below.

 

Wading pool styles range from classic circular pools to others with spray features and waterfalls.

 

Wading pools are open daily from 10 a.m. to 10 p.m. and are free to use. Wading pools have no lifeguards on duty, so parents and children are advised to have fun while keeping safety in mind. For a complete listing of wading pools and locations, visit www.minneapolisparks.org.

 

The Minneapolis Park and Recreation Board offers more than 75 locations to cool off during the summer, including wading pools, beaches and water parks. For more information about wading pools, beaches and waterparks, or water recreation activities such as swimming, sailing or logrolling lessons, visit www.minneapolisparks.org.
