SandVenture will not open for 2020 season

Decision made in accordance with public health guidelines

Post Date:05/15/2020 3:00 pm

The City of Shakopee has made the difficult decision not to open SandVenture Aquatic Park for the 2020 summer season. Based on public health guidelines from the CDC and the Minnesota Department of Public Health, the city has determined the closure is in the best interest of our staff, patrons and the community.

Because of the continually evolving health guidelines, Shakopee Parks and Recreation staff have opted to focus on SandVenture’s 2021 season.

 “We recognize that SandVenture has been a favorite summer location for Shakopee residents for more than 50 years, and this decision comes as a huge disappointment, but we are determined to keep our residents safe and healthy during these uncommon times,” said Aquatics Supervisor Katelyn Nadeau.

Our Parks and Recreation Department is working on a plan to reopen the indoor aquatic center at the Shakopee Community Center and  will resume its aquatics programs in line with public health standards, when permitted and allowed. Watch the city website or sign up at for updates.
