Aquatic center to remain closed for renovations

Located in Canton, Michigan, the Summit on the Park Aquatic
Center is expected to reopen in early 2021 after major renovations.
The Aquatic Center at the Summit on the Park is expected to reopen early next year, following completion of $1.5 million in major renovations. 

The project will include replacement of the copper roof over the indoor Aquatic Center, as well as the iconic spire, located on the roof of the Summit on the Park. Additional enhancements include replacement of skylights, updated tile in locker rooms and sauna, as well as significant tile replacement in all pools, as well as on pool decks.  

“After careful consideration of the requirements for re-opening our recreation center's pool after being closed under state orders, Summit staff felt that it would be difficult to do so to just turn around and have to close again so soon,” said Summit on the Park Facility Supervisor Jason Lombardo.  “Once we reviewed the Summit's Capital Improvement Projects slated for 2021, the decision was made to proceed with these major renovations in 2020, as opposed to re-opening now and then having to schedule a future closure again so soon for these significant renovations.”

Using the Canton Improvement Program (CIP), the Summit on the Park can enhance existing recreational amenities, as well as provide essential updates to this 24-year-old community asset. As renovations progress, the Aquatic Center will reopen in phases as construction allows until it is able to open to full operation, officials said. 

The 13,340 square-foot Aquatic Center is home to a five-lane, 25-yard lap pool'; zero-depth leisure pool with play features; lazy river and slide, as well as a steam room and sauna.  The Aquatic Center provides a safe environment in which participants can achieve their highest level of fitness through aquatic activity. Programming for all ages and ability levels includes a variety of learn-to-swim programs, as well as fitness and water-safety classes, a spokesman noted.
