It’s almost get-wet season in Southwest. The Minneapolis Park and Recreation Board today announced its schedule for pool and beach openings, with the first less than two weeks away.

All of the city’s 62 neighborhood wading pools will be open by June 13, with some opening as early as June 10. For locations, call 230-6400.

Beaches with lifeguards will open on June 13. Lifeguards will be on duty through the summer from noon to 8 p.m. seven days a week. Water quality reports can be found by calling the Park Board’s beach hotline, 313-7713.

All openings are weather permitting.
