Keep our city swimming: Donate to the Minneapolis parks swimsuit drive

minneapolis park and recreation


Help keep Minneapolis
in the swim!

Donate new and gently used swimwear for children, youth, women and men.

North Commons Water Park

Boys swim trunks in youth sizes 6 to 16 is our greatest need

Our previously donated supply is gone. Can you help us out again?

The Minneapolis Park and Recreation (MPRB) is committed to helping everyone use and enjoy the park system's Jim Lupient and North Commons water parks and the Webber Natural Swimming Pool (NSP)


These facilities require everyone to wear appropriate swimwear, which can pose a barrier for some. That's why MPRB is collecting swimsuits again this year. Here's how you can contribute:


What to donate

  • New and gently used swimsuits in all sizes and styles
  • Boys swim trunks in youth sizes 6 to 16 is our greatest need
  • Swim trunks for men and boys must have a mesh liner

Where to donate 

Donation boxes are located at:


  • Swimsuit drive runs through Labor Day: Monday, September 6.
  • Patrons can receive swimsuits at no cost at Lupient and North Commons water parks, Webber NSP.
  • Swimsuit size and availability depends on supply. 
  • Burkinis are available on a limited basis.

Thank you for your generosity.
