The Summit on the Park’s Aquatic Center, part of Canton's premier fitness and recreation destination since 1996, is currently undergoing significant renovation, which is expected to be completed by mid-December 2023.
This $2.4 million construction project, led by Canton Facilities Maintenance staff, will include tile replacement in all pools, including the lap pool and family pool, as well as on the pool decks. In addition, tile will also be replaced in the spa and sauna, as well as in the men’s, women’s, and family locker rooms. Further enhancements include the addition of a water feature, replacement of the Marcite plaster in the Lazy River, as well as painting of the pool deck roof.
"This short-term inconvenience will definitely bring long-term gains for individuals who utilize our Aquatic Center as part of their regular fitness routine," said Summit Facility Supervisor Jason Lombardo. "Summit staff is eager to update and improve our Aquatic Center because of its popularity among residents and its high use for swim lessons and water fitness classes. We are determined to complete this project on schedule and get everyone back in the water as soon as possible.”
Affected programs and amenities will include: swim lessons, lap swim, water fitness classes, as well as sauna and steam room access. During the short-term closure, additional Land Fitness classes will be made available to Summit members to supplement fitness opportunities within the facility. In addition, access to one family/special accommodations locker room will remain available at all times during construction.
To minimize the effect of the Aquatic Center closure, all Summit on the Park members will have the opportunity to ‘freeze’ or temporarily pause their memberships for the duration of construction and forego access to the facility. In addition, Summit members will have access to a few aquatic facilities in surrounding communities while the Summit Aquatic Center is closed for renovations, including: the Meri Lou Murray Recreation Center in Ann Arbor; the Jack E. Kirksey Recreation Center in Livonia; and the Romulus Athletic Center. This will provide Summit members with a temporary “facility admittance pass” for alternate use of these aquatic centers during open swim and lap swim times. Members are asked to contact the Summit front desk, if they wish to elect any of these options. The Summit on the Park Aquatic Center is expected to re-open in late December 2023.
The Summit on the Park’s 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.
The Summit on the Park, located at 46000 Summit Parkway in Canton, MI, 48188, remains a popular facility for area residents to utilize its many amenities including: Fitness Center, Gymnasium, Aerobics Studio, Dance Studio, and Track. The Summit currently offers three-month, six-month, and annual memberships, as well as daily drop-in access.
