Parks and Recreation Programming Updates

Post Date:05/06/2020
To keep our community safe during the coronavirus pandemic, the City of Eden Prairie has made the difficult decision to cancel all Parks and Recreation programs and events through July 5. If you or a member of your family is registered for one of these programs, you will automatically receive a full refund, in the form of your original payment, within the next few weeks. Registration for remaining summer programs will re-open in June if circumstances allow.

This decision also means our community’s summer concert series at the Staring Lake Amphitheatre is canceled for the month of June. We hope concerts will resume later this summer, but not until conditions are appropriate for large-group gatherings.

Perhaps most difficult of all, we have decided the beloved Hometown Celebration, which typically takes place July 3–4 at Round Lake Park, will be a virtual event this year. Although we can’t be together physically for this annual celebration, we can still come together as a community and celebrate in a different way — watch for details to come!

City facilities, including the Community Center, Outdoor Center, Senior Center and Art Center remain closed and we are not booking facility rentals prior to July 1. We look forward to the day we can announce they are open again, and you’ll be the first to know!

Please continue to enjoy Eden Prairie parks while maintaining appropriate physical distancing to help slow the spread of COVID-19, and continue to monitor for frequently updated information and resources.

We’re all in this together and hope to see everyone soon!
