New wading pool planned at Logan Park

Wading pool will close for construction late summer/early fall and reopen early summer 2017

The Minneapolis Park and Recreation Board (MPRB) is planning to rebuild the Logan Park wading pool. It will be converted from its current circular design featuring a uniform 24-inch depth to a square design featuring a sloping, zero-depth entry that gradually increases to a 24-inch depth. All new MPRB wading pools must have zero-depth entry to increase accessibility and comply with the Americans with Disabilities Act.

The 45-year-old wading pool is scheduled to close for construction in late summer/early fall 2016 and reopen early summer 2017. The project is designed to protect the large elm tree between the pool and recreation center.

Two open houses are scheduled for the public to engage with project staff:

Open House #1

Arbor Day Celebration
