Plans to replace the restrooms and skating rink warming house at Round Lake Park are expected to be discussed Monday, Oct. 10, by the Eden Prairie Planning Commission en route to city council review on Nov. 15.
Proposed to be built by the city is a 4,293-square-foot building, which would be much larger than the 1,800-square-foot building that has existed at Round Lake Park for about 40 years. According to a city staff report, that would allow the park building to be used for more than restrooms, warming house, and storage – including rental for community gatherings.
Several sustainable features would be incorporated into the project, according to the report, such as solar panels, a green roof, and a hydronic heating system.
This is an informational item for the commission, and no action is required. The city’s parks commission has already recommended approval of the project.
The planning commission’s Oct. 10 meeting at the Eden Prairie City Center, 8080 Mitchell Road, begins at 7 p.m.
