Community Spotlight: Waconia’s Safari Island Community Center
What if there was a place in town that provided child care opportunities, a fitness facility, kid and adult recreation activities and a membership cost less than $45 a month for your entire family? Well if you live in Waconia, or are thinking of putting down roots here, you’d be in luck. The city’s Safari Island Community Center has it all.
The community center features two different indoor water parks and a separate lap pool, a full-size gymnasium, fitness center with tons of different equipment and a variety of group fitness classes every week. Memberships are sold annually and billed each month. For a family that resides in Waconia, the month fee for 2014 was just $44.35, which for anyone who has ever had a gym membership, this is a steal.
There is also a child care center available from 8 a.m. to 10 a.m. Monday through Friday, and from 6-8 p.m. every Thursday. This is also where the city’s recreational offices are held, where community members can sign up for city rec leagues or register their children for swimming lessons.
Whether you’re looking for tons of family fun or a local gym that can help you stay fit, Safari Island Community Center is a great place to consider.
