We recognize not all swimming locations (including private pools and beaches) will be guarded this summer. Please take safety measures if you choose to swim in these locations such as never swimming alone and following all the posted rules, guidelines and local laws. Minneapolis Park and Recreation will start guarding the following beaches starting July 2: Bde Maka Ska Thomas Beach, Cedar Lake East Beach, Lake Harriet North Beach, Lake Nokomis Main Beach and Wirth Lake Beach. Please note that swimmers are allowed in the designated buoy area from 6:00 am until 10:00 pm. Swimming outside of the marked area or time is not allowed. Swimming is done at your own risk and social distancing is strongly encouraged.
We recommend you run and bike solo while maintaining a distance of six feet or more apart from other people. If pathways or roadways are busy, please find another route.
