 THE (WET) WAIT IS OVER! Canton aquatic center primed to re-open

The Summit on the Park lap pool is set to reopen Friday

The Summit on the Park’s aquatic center, part of Canton’s premier fitness and recreation destination since 1996, is set to reopen its five-lane pool on Friday (Dec. 15) for lap swimming only, as renovations to the center are nearly completed.

Summit members and guests will now be able to access only the lap pool: Monday through Friday from 6 a.m. to 8:30 p.m.; and Saturday and Sunday from 7 a.m. to 7:30 p.m.

As renovations are finalized, the aquatic center will reopen its remaining amenities on Thursday, Dec. 21, with open swim times available Tuesday and Thursday from 6 to 8 p.m.; and Saturday and Sunday from 1 p.m. to 4 p.m.

Swim lessons to return

During Plymouth-Canton Community Schools’ winter break from Dec. 23, through Jan. 6, 2024, additional open swim times will be available on Wednesdays and Fridays from 12:30 p.m. to 3:30 p.m.  All swim lessons will also resume on Jan. 7, 2024, with limited registration currently available at
