Summit on the Park Facility Update

Beginning Monday, September 7th at 12 Noon, the Summit on the Park will close for its Annual Maintenance Shutdown. The Summit, with the exception of the Aquatic Center, will re-open on Saturday, September 12th at 6 a.m. Please note that the Aquatic Center will be Closed for Renovations for 5 weeks and will re-open on Sunday, October 11th at 7 a.m.   These renovations will ultimately improve the Aquatic Center environment. 

Affected areas include: Entire Aquatic Center; Aquatic Center Locker Rooms (including special accommodation); Family Locker Room; Sauna; and Steam Room.   Please note that there will be no access to Aquatic Center Locker Rooms and shower facilities during the Aquatic Center’s 5-week closure.  Fitness Center Locker Rooms will remain open and available for all Summit guests.  Renovation Projects will include: Pool Filter Replacement; Aquatic Center Painting & Tile Repair; and Locker Room Improvements.
As a thank you to our Summit Members for their patience during these renovations, current members will get a total of 5 weeks of membership added to their current membership starting on September 8, 2015.  This is in addition to the extra week that is already included in all annual memberships to accommodate the week-long Annual Summit Maintenance Shutdown. 

Regular swim lessons will not be offered during this 5-week shut down and the next session is scheduled to begin October 11, 2015; however, Summit Swim School Participants will not be charged for September and October 2015.  Summit Swim School programs will resume the week of October 11, 2015, as well.
