Some more expansions are happening at the Eden Prairie Community Center as well. The aquatic center could possibly become much bigger and more kid friendly if the family fun waterpark and pool is added to the center. Round lake park has also become much more family oriented with the new playground, splash-pad, and skate park. Miracle Field is another project being talked about. This field is not sponsored by the city but will provide a baseball field over at Flying Cloud Park that is completely accessible for disabled children. Along with health and welness many schools are joining in on the edible playgrounds where students are learning how to plant, nourish, and harvest various fruits adn vegetables.

This week we heard from our own club members about a new and twisted fundraiser being organized by the Eden Prairie Noon Rotary. The Twisted Winter Wonderfest will be held on Saturday, February 8 at Round Lake and the Eden Prairie Community Center. To make this event as twisted as possible there will be many different indoor and outdoor activities for all to participate in. The outdoor portion will begin at 1:14 and end at exactly 4:58. A few of the activities include different races, kids games, food trucks, and a polar plunge. The indoor portion of this event includes beer pong, cosmic bingo, and more.
