Edina’s Centennial Lakes and Edinborough Park… fun winter destinations for kids

This has been a cold, snowy winter, with five days in January so cold that schools were closed! Last week was one of those weeks… the kind of week where kids start bouncing off the walls. We had a grandkid sleepover Friday night and decided it would be better to let them run and play and slide and jump in  Adventure Peak at Edina's Edinborough Park than in our place!

They easily spent a couple hours climbing and running, crawling and sliding in this 44' x 44' by 37' high play structure, one of the largest in the country. Our grandkids' favorite slide of the many was the new orange super-fast super-slide where they flew out of the tube when they reached bottom!

If my memory serves me correctly, Adventure Peak was built on the site of what used to be an indoor skating rink in innovative Edinborough Park… a one-acre indoor park complete with trees which also includes a junior size Olympic pool, running track, fitness center and multi-purpose play area.

If you want to ice skate it is still available nearby… outside at frozen Centennial Lakes Park, where you can see the Edinborough Park building in the distance. At least we haven't had to worry about the ice melting this year!

The "Peak" is a 44-by-44-by-37 foot high climbing, low crawling, slip sliding Northwoods adventure. Climb into the 30-foot tall oak tree, slide down one of the four giant tube slides or wash down the triple wave slide. Climb across a canyon, scale the climbing wall and venture to the 30 foot lookout to spy around the Park. From the lookout, slide down the very popular and very fast new super slide. – See more at: http://edinamn.gov/index.php?section=edinborough-park-adventure-peak#sthash.6zAkD38H.dpuf
