Staying in the Twin Cities This Weekend? Well, check out the pools!

Remember the city "pools"? They were rectangular concrete holes in the ground.

Now, we have beautiful aquatic playgrounds! Sprinklers, chutes, slides, tubing and more! And they are still evolving for even more fun.

Most kids love these places and could spend hours there. Moms love it, too! Farmers tans might hold backs some, but who cares – go for it!

There are many water parks in the Metro area and some that are just a little ways out. 

Of course most people think of Valley Fair, but there are more… here are just a few!

  • Maple Grove Community Pool  has a double-pool indoor/outdoor setup at their Community Center. maplegrovemn.gov
  • How about a gondola cruise on the St Croix River out of Stillwater? Try Gondola Romantica
  • Como Town Splash Zone, in St Paul, is a wonderful place for children. Buckets of fun! Tubing and a zipline are a great combination. comotown.com
