Edina, Minn., June 8, 2021 – The Edina Aquatic Center will open for the season Friday, June 11.
The municipal Edina Aquatic Center, 4300 W. 66th St., was set to open Friday, June 4. Water from a heavy rain the previous week got into the facility’s main electrical distribution panel, ruining the equipment. The electrical panel has been repaired, but it delayed the opening of the facility for about a week.
“Because we could not open last season, we know many of our patrons have been more excited than ever about the opening of the Edina Aquatic Center. We are so sorry we were not able to open the first weekend of June as we had planned,” said General Manager Patty McGrath. “The facility is in great shape and we can’t wait to see people swimming and enjoying themselves in the water. It’s going to be a great summer!”
Season passholders who purchased their passes before June 5 will be refunded a portion of what they paid. The amount refunded will be based on the purchase price and the number of days the swimming pool was closed due to the electrical failure. Season passholders are encouraged to pick up their passes from the Aquatic Center between 10 a.m. and 8 p.m. prior to opening day.
One of the metro area’s premier water attractions, the Edina Aquatic Center features a 50-meter lap pool with diving well, diving boards, Lost Wave surf simulator, body and tube slides, zip line, water playground and dry playground area.
Current hours of specific amenities are:
- Main pool – 11:30 a.m.-8 p.m. Monday through Friday and 10 a.m.-8 p.m. Saturdays and Sundays
