90 Days of Summer: Editors' Picks
Day 35: A Water Park in Your Backyard
The Jim Lupient Water Park is the best little getaway Minneapolis could ask for.
Just off 35W in northeast Minneapolis hides this gem of a water park, boasting three larger waterslides, foam play quarry equipment, a spray pool for the little tykes, water volleyball, and interactive spray features. Rent a cabana for a birthday celebration, or just to secure your own shady escape. Avoid packing a kiddie picnic by ordering from the menu on location, and if you run out of activities (seriously?!) a new mini-golf course was added just a few years ago. 1520 NE Johnson St., Mpls., 612-370-3989, minneapolisparks.org
