Like many summer days in Maple Grove, sometimes you just need a place to stay cool.
Here are five of Maple Grove Patch’s suggestions of ways to beat the heat in Maple Grove throughout the summer. Have an idea to share? Where will you be going to cool off? Tell us in comments!
- If you haven’t been to the Grove Cove Aquatic Center, located in the Maple Grove Community Center, it can provide hours of cooling off with both indoor and outdoor pools for all ages (and waterslides). Check out the city of Maple Grove website hours and admission fee details.
- Weaver Lake Beach is free and open to the public with lifeguards and a park supervisor on duty. It is open noon to 7 p.m. Monday through Saturday until Aug. 17. There are also onsite restrooms, large tube slide to the beach and concession stand. Weaver Lake also has a public boat launch area.
- The Elm Creek Swimming Pond, located in the Elm Creek Park Reserve, is open noon to 8 p.m. Monday through Friday until Aug. 12. The cost is $3 per day per person or a $10 season pass per person. Fees are paid onsite. Elm Creek Swimming Pond is a man-made swimming pond, according to the Three Rivers Park District website, and has a sand beach, changing shelter, concessions and bathrooms onsite.
- The Fish Lake Regional Park swimming beach is free and open to the public and open 9 a.m. to 8 p.m. It is part of the Three Rivers Park District. This is an unguarded beach. Fish Lake Regional Park also has a public boat launch area.
