New in 2011, a floating swimming dock adds fun to Lake Harriet's North Beach! Located within the buoyed swimming area, the 10 x 13 foot floating docks offer the thrill of jumping into the lake that can’t be achieved from the shore. Read the news release here.
The water quality of our public beaches is monitored by the park system on a regular basis. For current beach status call the Beach Hotline at 612-313-7713, or click on the Current Water Quality Information icon below:
