about Centennial Lakes Park:
In the winter, the lake becomes an enormous (and free) ice skating rink, with skates, Norwegian ice sleds, hot chocolate, and snacks available for a fee in the Park Centrum Building, which is open to the public as a warming house complete with restrooms and fireplaces.
In warmer weather, fishing is allowed and spectators can watch the remote-controlled vessels of the Edina Model Yacht Club ply the placid waters.
The Maetzold Amphitheater at the south end of the lake hosts performances all summer, with noon events most Tuesdays and Thursdays especially for kids. (That series of free shows continues indoors at Edinborough Park September through May.)
