Hanging around in Eden Prairie parks just got a whole lot easier.

Currently, city code does not allow the use of hammocks in the city's park.

But with the popularity of lounging around in a hammock on the rise, the city is looking to revise the ordinance. As city officials revaluate the ordinance, the city will not be enforcing the applicable code. 

While hammocking will be permitted, the city asks those hanging one use tree-friendly straps. 

Hammocks are allowed in Minneapolis parks. However, they must be used during parks hours, cannot damage property and cannot damage vegetation. 

The use of hammocks in parks is not mentioned in the 2018 St. Paul parks rules and regulations.
