Water Parks & Wading Pools

Take swimming lessons, host a birthday party, and keep in shape with lap swimming. The Minneapolis Park and Recreation Board offers water recreation at two water parks, two pools, and 65 wading pools.

Water Parks

Jim Lupient Water Park
This water park features three large water slides, including a tube slide. Additional features are a log water walk, interactive spray features, water volleyball, lap swimming lanes and zero depth entry at one end for accessibility.

The park theme is a rock quarry so featured items are designed to look like a quarry by incorporating stone, foam play quarry equipment and foam logs. There is also separate spray pool for younger kids that is completely accessible. New colorful shade structures, outside shower towers, concessions, plenty of seating, a grassy sun-bathing area and outside lockers are among the amenities. Covered shelters are available for reservation, completely accessible, and feature seating for 15 people.
