Opening of Burnes Park Splash Pad Delayed

Due to safety concerns regarding the COVID-19 pandemic, the Hopkins splash pad at Burnes Park will not open on Memorial Day weekend.  

Although the CDC has released considerations for the safety of those who operate, manage and use water playgrounds, the City is awaiting guidance from the Minnesota Department of Health regarding safe operations of Minnesota water parks, including splash pads. This guidance is anticipated to be included in a June 1 State of Minnesota announcement.  

If it is determined that the splash pad can be safely operated and supervised within the CDC and Minnesota Department of Health guidelines, the splash pad will open later in June at a date to be determined.  

Watch the City’s website for an announcement on the splash pad in early-to-mid June.
