Metroparks had previously sent out an alert that the pool at Lake Erie Metropark was set to open this week. During final pre-opening operations and tests, a section of marcite (the cement-like finish in the inside of the pool walls) unexpectedly failed leaving sharp edges and causing conditions unsafe for swimming.
“The safety of our visitors is our highest priority, so the pool will not be able to open tomorrow,” the Metroparks said in a press release.
The repair requires staff to drain the pool and repair the surface. Because of the time it will take to complete the repair, the pool will unfortunately not re-open this year.
Visitors can still cool off in other pools at Willow and Lake St. Clair Metroparks and can enjoy Turtle Cover Family Aquatic Center at Lower Huron Metropark or splash pads at Kensington, Indian Springs or Lake St. Clair Metroparks.
