Rochester, MN (KROC AM News) Rochester’s Parks Dept. has been busy getting the city’s parks ready for the summer season, which unofficially kicks off Memorial Day weekend.

The Foster Arend Beach may be one of the most popular sites this weekend because of the expected heat. It is scheduled to open Saturday. A new "inflatables water park” is expected to be added there this summer.

 The Soldiers Field swimming pool is scheduled to open June 9th. The Silver Lake pool is tentatively scheduled to open June 11th.

One of the city’s parks has been a busy place this spring for local geese. Many spend the entire year in the city and have already started a new generation at Silver Lake Park.
