Safety Restrictions at Shady Oak Beach

Due to historic snow melt this year, as well as recent heavy rainfall, the water level at Shady Oak Lake has risen considerably. The City is currently pumping and redirecting the water, however, the effects of that process will not be seen immediately. The beach will open as planned today, but with some location and activity restrictions for safety purposes:

  • The high dive and dock will be closed
  • All sand is under water
  • Water access will be limited to certain entry points.

For questions about your 2019 Shady Oak Beach pass, please contact Recreation Services at 952-939-8203. More information about the beach is available here.
