What is Curfew in Eden Prairie?

Now that school is out, we are receiving questions about Eden Prairie’s curfew. The curfew here is established by Hennepin County and is the same for all cities within the county:

Age Sunday–Thursday Friday and Saturday
Under 12 Home by 9 p.m. Home by 10 p.m.
12 to 14 Home by 10 p.m. Home by 11 p.m.
15 to 17 Home by 11 p.m. Home by midnight

The law applies if the child is in any public place after these hours, including walking, biking or driving a vehicle. There are exceptions including employment, school, religious observances, sponsored recreational activities and emergencies.
