Edina Aquatic Center

FAQs

Do I have to pay admission even though I am not going to swim?
All guests are required to pay admission to get into the park. There is no way to separate or regulate those who are not using the amenities.

Do you allow floatation devices?
Yes, we allow U.S. Coast Guard approved flotation devices. Inflatable devices are not permitted. A limited number of approved floatation devices are available for use at the Aquatic Center.

What age do you need to be in order to visit the pool without a parent or guardian?
There is no minimum age as we feel it is up to the parents discretion and based upon the child's swimming ability and maturity.

Are there additional fees once I get in to the Edina Aquatic Center?
All amenities, with the exception of the concession stand and The Lost Wave surf simulator, are included in the daily admission fee. Season passes include the surf simulator. Height restrictions apply.

Does the Edina Aquatic Center accept personal checks?
Unfortunately, the Edina Aquatic Center can no longer accept personal checks. However, we do accept cash or credit card purchases at our Admissions and Concessions windows.

Swim diapers are required on all children 3 and under and on children over age 3 who are not completely potty trained. You can purchase a swim diaper from the admissions counter.

Do you have lifeguards on duty?
The pool is staffed by certified lifeguards who complete a rigorous national training program. The pool also undergoes safety audits throughout the season.
