Construction on a new concessions pavilion area at Bde Maka Ska began on May 23, 2022. The project will create two new buildings, including new, all-gender accessible restrooms and ample outdoor public seating to replace the building that burned down in 2019. The new buildings are scheduled to open next summer. The Bde Maka Ska boat launch will be closed June 6-Sept. 16. Trailered boats will not be allowed on or off the lake while the boat launch is closed. The Minneapolis Sailing Center and Wheel Fun Rentals will continue to operate at northeast Bde Maka Ska this season. Occasional trail closures will be necessary to maintain a safe work area.
Road closures may also be necessary. The former Bde Maka Ska concessions pavilion, also called a “refectory,” was built in 1930 and was operated seasonally until it burned down in 2019. The site was paved over to provide a temporary gathering space at the popular northeastern corner of the lake, and utilities were repaired to allow vendors to continue operating.
