• The pool will be open on Fridays, Saturdays and Sundays from Noon – 7 p.m.
• Pool entry will be $4.00 per person.
• The pool will operate as a flat pool and there will be no waves.
• The spray features on the deck will be in operation.
• Flotation tubes and life jackets will be available for use.
• The food bar will not be open.
• The pool capacity will be limited to the first 500 swimmers each day.
• Pricing and more details can be found at this link.
In addition to the Lake Erie Metropark pool, visitors can cool off in five other constructed water facilities throughout Southeast Michigan (Willow Metropark pool, Turtle Cove Family Aquatic Center, Lake St. Clair Metropark pool, Kensington Metropark Splash ‘N’ Blast, Indian Springs Metropark Spray ‘N’ Play).
For visitors looking for a natural water experience, they can visit beaches at three Metroparks, hop on the Huron or Clinton rivers in multiple locations or enjoy boating, fishing and paddling on inland lakes.
