It’s easy to feel cooped up on a rainy, dreary, or snowy day in Minnesota. Let your little ones run at Edinborough Park in Edina where it’s a pleasant 70 degrees year round. As the state’s largest indoor play park, Edinborough Park is a safe, perfect play place for children of all ages and their grownups alike.

The large park includes Adventure Peak for some Northwoods exploration, including 30-foot tall oak trees for climbing. Kids will feel like explorers as they navigate across a canyon, scale the climbing wall and venture to the 30-foot lookout to survey the park. From the lookout, they can slide down a new, fast super slide. While not native to Minnesota forests, attractions like the four giant tube slides and triple wave slide only add to the fun. Grownups can tag along for the adventure—the park features wider tunnels so they can fit, too.

For the littlest in your crew, check out Little Peak, a gated area within the Adventure Peak space designed for children ages 4 and under. It includes a small slide and padded climbing area as well as recently added musical elements and an inflatable air bounce geared toward toddlers. The entire padded, netted, and enclosed structure has more than 45 activities to keep kids entertained.

Overall, the play park is designed for children ages 12 months to 12 years, but children 13 and older may play at the park for free (with a paid admission sibling and their parent or guardian). If your kids get hungry during their play, don’t worry. Peak Café has a variety of options for a snack or light meal. For special occasions, check the online calendar for free concerts, kid shows, and other entertainment held at the park’s amphitheater from September through May.
