Update From Parks & Recreation

Dear residents and valued customers,

The COVID-19 pandemic has presented unprecedented challenges for us all. As we continue to respond to COVID-19, your health and well-being remain our top priority. Following guidance of the Minnesota Department of Health (MDH) to help slow the spread of COVID-19 and the Stay at Home Order issued by Minnesota Governor Tim Walz, all Edina Parks & Recreation programs and events scheduled to begin in April will be canceled or postponed.

If you registered for a program or event scheduled in April, refunds will be processed if a program or event can’t be rescheduled. Once the City determines the status of all programs and how long they will be suspended for, staff will provide an update and begin processing full refunds.

The following facilities remain closed to the public until further notice:

  • Braemar Arena, 7501 Ikola Way
  • Braemar Field, 7509 Ikola Way
  • Braemar Golf Course, 6364 John Harris Drive
  • Braemar Golf Dome, 7420 Braemar Blvd.
  • Centennial Lakes Park, 7499 France Ave. S.
  • Edina Senior Center, 5280 Grandview Square
  • Edina Art Center, 4701 W. 64th St.
  • Edinborough Park, 7700 York Ave. S.

Helpful reminders:

  • All playgrounds in City parks remain closed
  • Pickeball courts at Rosland Park are closed
  • Park restrooms are closed
  • Park drinking fountains are closed
  • Bredesen Park Trail has switched to counter-clockwise pedestrian movement
  • Please do not participate in gatherings of any size on City fields, courts and open spaces:
    • Park users should not participate in organized activities including basketball, football, soccer, lacrosse and ultimate frisbee.
  • Please be mindful of the Stay at Home Order effective March 27 at 11:59 p.m. through April 10 and put at least 6 feet of distance between yourself and others.

While recreation facilities are closed and programs are canceled or postponed, there’s still plenty to do outdoors:

  • All Edina parks and trails remain open
  • Go for a walk, run or bike ride
  • Create chalk art on your driveway or sidewalk

As events unfold, our plans will continue to change to address the new challenges. It is the mission of Edina Parks & Recreation to improve the quality of life for residents of all ages by developing and maintaining parks, open space and trails and providing recreational and cultural opportunities. We hope you’ll use our trails and parks in a safe manner, and we will continue to support you along the way.

Sincerely,
Perry Vetter
Parks & Recreation Director
