Summit Aquatic Center reopens following major renovations

While a grand re-opening of the Summit Aquatic Center is planned for Jan. 5, the five-lane pool was quietly opened for lap swimming as the $2.4 million in renovations to the facility are completed.

The construction project included tile replacement in all pools, including the lap pool and family pool, as well as on the pool decks, officials said. Tile was also replaced in the spa and sauna, as well as in the men's, women's, family, and inclusive locker rooms.  Further enhancements include the addition of a colorful 6-foot tall Gum Drop water feature, as well as the painting of the pool deck roof.  Summit members and guests will now be able to access only the lap pool from 6 a.m. until 8:30 p.m. Monday through Friday and from 7 a.m. until 7:30 p.m. Saturday and Sunday.

Additional renovations are still under way that will require the Aquatic Center hallway to remain closed, as well as the spa, sauna, and steam room. In addition, the large pool stairs will not be accessible; however, the chairlift for ADA access will be available. In addition, the men's and women's locker rooms will be accessible and the family locker room should open today, Dec. 21. 

As renovations are finalized,  Aquatic Center officials planned for the reopening of the remaining amenities today with open swim times available from 6 until 8 p.m. Tuesday and Thursday  and from 1 until 4 p.m. Saturday and Sunday. During the Plymouth-Canton Community Schools winter break from Dec. 23 through Jan. 6, additional open swim times will be available from 12:30 until 3:30 p.m. Wednesdays and Fridays.  All swim lessons will also resume on Jan. 7, with limited registration currently available at  Concluding construction projects may restrict public access to some Aquatic Center areas as renovations are finalized, officials noted.

The official reopening set for 5:30 p.m. Jan. 5 will take place in the Aquatic Center. Summit members and Canton residents will also be able to enjoy an open swim after the ceremony from 6-8 p.m. 

Although there is no fee to attend the open swim, pre-registration is required. Online registration for this special open swim session is currently available, although spots are limited, at with Code: AQ3510, officials said.

“Summit staff are eager to welcome back the community to our newly renovated Aquatic Center and thank them for their patience as we complete this important project,” stated Jason Lombardo, Summit facility supervisor.  “This construction project is so important for the long-term life of the pool and will ensure that our Aquatic Center is enjoyed for years to come.” 

The 13,340 square-foot Aquatic Center at the Summit on the Park features 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.  To learn more about the Summit on the Park Aquatic Center renovations, as well as available memberships, visit or call (734) 394-5460.
