Safari Island Community Center
The Waconia Safari Island Community Center opened in the Spring of 2001. Safari Island is the result of a collaborative effort between the City of Waconia and ISD #110. The facility was constructed in conjunction with the Clearwater Middle School, adjacent to Waconia High School and Brook Peterson Park. The building boasts a massive aquatics area complete with a water slide, an 8 lane competitive pool, overhead running track, 4 basketball courts, children’s play land, fitness area, and meeting rooms.
Golf Island View Golf Course is an 18-hole, par 72 course overlooking Lake Waconia, with meeting and banquet facilities. 952-442-6116.
During the winter months, the city's Park and Recreation Department maintains an outdoor freestyle skating rink and an ice hockey rink at Brook Peterson Park. A warming house is available during specified hours.
Flooding, maintenance and hours of these rinks are subject to weather conditions. Information on ice conditions and hours of operation may be obtained by calling Parks and Recreation at 952-442-5802.
