Moorhead’s South Park Wading Pool Update

Post Date:07/05/2024 11:00 am

The City of Moorhead Parks and Recreation Department announces the closure of the neighborhood wading pool at South Park, located near Ellen Hopkins School. This decision comes after determining that the pool, a 1950s era structure, is beyond reasonable repair due to persistent leaks and failing concrete and must be demolished.

The Park Advisory Board will review long-range planning for aquatics in Moorhead at its August meeting; however, South Park Pool is built on property owned by Moorhead Area Public Schools and a new wading pool at that location may not be possible. This plan is anticipated to also include investments in the city's 1980s-era wading pools located at Riverview Estates Park, Ridgewood Park, Village Green Park, and Hansmann Park.
