Bryn Mawr Wading Pool
This park is not adjacent to a school, therefore its usual pool season begins Memorial Day Weekend and ends after Labor Day. However, it is always a good idea to check MPRB's wading pool page to see which pools are open or closed at any time.
No Public Ice Skating
The ice rink at this park is only open for broomball league and does not have free loaner equipment. Most other Minneapolis parks do have loaner equipment available in their warming houses.
