Lake Waconia / Coney Island
Located on the northern edge of the City of Waconia is beautiful Lake Waconia. Lake Waconia is the largest lake in Carver County and the second-largest in the Twin Cities seven-county area. Additional lakes in the area include Reitz Lake, Piersons Lake, Parley Lake and Hydes Lake. Coney Island, part of Lake Waconia Regional Park, is located in the middle of the lake towards the southern end.
In the summer, Lake Waconia hosts a multitude of recreational activities: sailing, boating, fishing, water-skiing, tubing, jet-skiing, paddling, pontooning and swimming. In the spring, late summer and fall, the wide-open waters and seasonal winds attract wind surfers, sailboarders, sailors and kiteboarders from miles around. Find out more on the Summer Recreation page.
Lake Waconia becomes a city unto itself in the winter, with hundreds of ice-fishing houses forming a community of anglers enjoying a Minnesota winter. Learn more on the Winter Recreation page.
Lake Waconia regional park
Lake Waconia Regional Park is a 100-acre park situated on the southern shore of Lake Waconia. This shoreline park offers views of the lake and Coney Island. The park is in its early development for the future 164-acre park including Coney Island of the West. Existing facilities include a reservable group picnic shelter, play equipment, restrooms, a small swimming beach, picnic tables, volleyball court, and grills.
Boat access: is provided outside the park at the Minnesota DNR boat access located on the northeast side of the lake and at private marinas located in the city of Waconia. Park Hours are 6:00A.M.-10:00P.M. daily
Beach: One of the main attractions at Lake Waconia Regional Park is the well-kept beach. In 2004 the beach was redeveloped and in 2008 greatly enhanced with the addition of five large umbrellas providing additional shade to families and younger kids. In close proximity to the beach are picnic tables and grills, ideal for summer barbeques.
Waconia is derived from a Sioux-language word meaning "fountain" or "spring."
Homes located on the lake are in the Waconia Public School District.
