Despite a chilly start to summer, Minneapolis over the weekend dispatched 110 lifeguards to patrol city beaches, KARE 11 reports.
The city struggled through a lifeguard shortage last year, but this year reached its hiring goal in mid-May, the station reports. The lifeguards will be on duty at the city's 12 city beaches through Aug. 25.
The city also operates 65 wading pools, most of which have opened. The city's Jim Lupient Water Park also is open through Aug. 25.
In St. Paul, Como Pool, Highland Park Pool and Phalen Park Beach are open until Sept. 2.
