In order to keep our community safe and healthy, Shady Oak Beach is closed for the 2020 season. This difficult decision was made out of concern for our ability to:

  • Maintain safe social distance for patrons and staff in emergency situations
  • Manage attendance and create proper spacing for the number of daily visitors
  • Properly sanitize and disinfect shared spaces

We thank you for your understanding and look forward to seeing you next summer.

    Enjoy the summer season at Shady Oak Beach located at 5200 Shady Oak Road in Minnetonka. This facility is owned by the City of Hopkins, and operated by the City of Minnetonka’s Recreation Department.

    This 85-acre, fully recreational area offers 76′ of sandy beach shoreline and clear spring-fed waters, as well as great amenities including multi-age playground area, lifeguards, swimming, high dive, concessions, changing area, rentals for canoe, kayak, and stand-up paddle board, sand volleyball and free parking.
