EDINA, MN - There's something for everyone in the Edina Aquatic Centre. The facility has a 50 meters lap pool, diving boards, a simulator for surfing Lost Wave, body and tubing slides, a zip line, a water playground, and a dry playground!

  • 50-Meter Lap Pool With Diving Well
    The Edina Aquatic Center's most important attraction is an Olympic pool with a step-in entrance, a 3-meter diving board, and a 1-meter diving board with a lap pool. The water temperature in all collections is maintained at 82-84 degrees Celsius for the swimmers' comfort.
  • Diving Boards
    Experience the diving boards at one meter or three meters above sea level for the boldest diver. Flying in the air, jump out of the board and sail with a splash into the pool. Practice or see who can make the most perfect splash for the Olympics. For swimmers of all levels, the diving boards are enjoyable!
  • The Lost Wave Surf Simulator
    The Lost Wave will allow beginners to explore boarding in a safe setting. It will also be a challenge for skilled surfers to make this ride accessible to everyone.
  • Oakwood Forest
    Try to climb the magical treehouse's hollowed trunk to the watchtower. After looking from the building over the whole Aquatic Center, go down and enjoy monkey bars and bridges. Hiding in the log or be trapped in the spiderweb. Make new friends with the hippos, the alligator, and the giraffe who look over this playground. There's a lot to do at this dry playground if you need a breather from the water.
  • Pirate's Plunge - Body Slide & Tube Slide
    Rock down the body, tumble 207 meters, and launch into the bottom pond. A single, double, or three-person tube flies down the 300-foot tube stream. Every turn is intended for optimum pleasure. Please note that in Body Slide, the required height is at least 50 inches.
  • Shipwreck Express - Zip Line
    Take the Shipwreck Express on deck and walk the board. Watch the water as you get ready to ride the rope. Trapeze off a platform of 10 feet, take the string down and easily wind other swimmers on deck and in the swimming pool. Cross the 6 1⁄2 feet deep to cool down following your exciting trip along the zipper. At least 50-inch tall swimmers must be recruited.
  • Lil' Lagoon - Water Playground
    Their new water playground is for kids 8 years old and younger. Closed by the other attractions, this pirate-themed play arrangement gives cooling down and a place for small children to stay nearby and interact with.
