First-of-its-kind public pool comes to North Minneapolis

A new “cutting edge” pool is expected to open in North Minneapolis later this month. The Webber Park Natural Swimming Pool (NSP), pending inspection approval, will open July 24, said Minneapolis Park Board officials.

According to a park board fact sheet, there are approximately 20,000 NSPs, mostly located in Europe. They are “living systems… They function more like a stream, lake or wetland.” Most NSPs in North America however are private.
