We regret to inform our guests that our Leisure Pool will close following scheduled programming on Sunday, Jan. 5, for repairs. This closure is to repair the liner, eliminating bubbling and regain the use of our river and vortex. We anticipate reopening in mid-January. Most Swim Lessons will be cancelled for the Winter I session. Limited Swim Lessons will be offered in the Lap Pool. Most water exercise classes will be moved to the Lap Pool. Aqua Logix Water Challenge and Arthritic H2O will be cancelled. We apologize for the inconvenience. We are working tirelessly to provide you with the state-of-the-art facility you deserve.

The Livonia Parks and Recreation Department is proud to offer Livonia youth, ages 17 and younger a scholarship program to make recreation programs and activities affordable for as many youths as possible.
The scholarship, funded by St. Mary Mercy Livonia through the Healthy Livonia initiative, is designed to assist Livonia families financially by subsidizing the cost of programs up to a maximum of $300 per child, per year; on a first-come, first-serve basis. The Livonia Parks and Recreation will cover 85% of the program fee and the parent/guardian will be responsible for 15% of the fee per approved program. Funds available based upon donations and sponsorship of the program. This scholarship is another example of community partners breaking down barriers for youth participation in exercise, enrichment and activities.
