Boy on Highland Park Aquatic Center diving boardWe continue to monitor public health guidelines and look forward to a day when we can safely reopen our aquatics facilities, however Como Regional Park Pool and Highland Park Aquatic Center will not open this summer. The ability to safely operate our outdoor pools requires a rigorous hiring and lifeguard training process that needs to start in early March to be successful. Additionally, our service model does not easily allow us to start and stop services should the ‘Stay Safe MN’ dials determined by the State of Minnesota fluctuate throughout the summer. We are continuing to explore other cooling options across the city and will provide more information as those decisions are made. We understand these changes may cause inconvenience to our residents and appreciate the impact these closures have for many in our community. We are exploring other ways for our residents to safely cool off. Visit for updates.
