15 Twin Cities Pools and Water Parks to Cool Off and Splash Around In

15 of our Favorite Water Parks & Pools in the Twin Cities

Minnesota may be the land of 10,000 lakes, but that doesn’t mean we are stuck with only swimming with the fish. Our metro area is FILLED with just as many options for water parks and pools from big to little.

Test your bravery on high diving boards, feel the rush of a downward spiral slide, or practice your swimming in the big lap pools. Every corner of the Cities has a waterpark or pool to delight and these are our favorites. What’s yours?

Don’t forget to check out our Twin Cities’ Guide to Water Fun for even more options to splash around!
