Family Fun Directory of Things To Do with Kids:
Logan Park in Minneapolis has family-friendly amenities, including a playground, wading pool, recreation center and sports fields and courts.
Logan Rec Center
The recreation center has super friendly staff who seem genuinely glad to see children running wild. It is a neighborhood favorite for tot times. Off-street parking is available, which is particularly nice in the winter. The recreation center offers tot times in the gym and a game room.
Logan offers the full selection of indoor drop in activities: arts & crafts, board games, computer labs, foosball, gym games, ping pong and billiards.

Logan Park Outdoors
Outside, the park has both a playground and a tot lot. In the summer Logan Park has a sports field areas, a basketball court, and a tennis court.
Logan Park is on a corner that includes busy Broadway Street. That could be a downside if you have a tot who is a runner. The traffic can also make it loud. We attended a Cromulent Shakespeare performance there one summer, and I found it difficult to hear the actors.
Logan Wading Pool
The long awaited replacement of Logan's 45 year old pool began during the summer of 2018 and was finalized in 2019. The new pool is pictured below
In the winter Logan Park offers an ice skating area with free loaner skates. These skates are on a first-come/first-served basis, but we have never had an issue finding the right sizes. They also have at least two hockey rinks set up. All rinks are kept up in very good condition.
Logan Park's Neighborhood
The park is not too far from Spyhouse Coffee and several restaurants, including Broadway Pizza, making it a nice park to include in a combo-outing.
This park participates in the summer meals program, offering free lunch to children under 18 during summer break. The program runs from mid-June to mid-August.
