The Summit on the Park’s Aquatic Center, part of Canton's premier fitness and recreation destination since 1996, is currently closed for major renovations and is expected to re-open in early 2021.
This $1.5 million renovation 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."
Through Canton Township’s Capital 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.
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.
The Summit on the Park, located at 46000 Summit Parkway in Canton, MI, 48188, remains a popular destination for area residents to utilize its many amenities in the current COVID-19 environment, including: Fitness Center, Gymnasium, Aerobics Studio, Dance Studio, and Track. The Summit currently offers three-month, six-month, and annual memberships.
