Health Department Closes Public Pools

MAY 28, 2020: In a joint release, Wayne, Oakland and Macomb Counties ordered all public pools closed indefinitely to safeguard from the spread of coronavirus." Although pool water poses a low risk of transmitting COVID-19, it is difficult to maintain social distance in and around pools, as well as in the associated facilities- enclosures, deck areas and sanitary facilities."

Outdoor Swim Lessons 

The City of Livonia is striving to have the best swim lesson program in the area. We have combined the best aspects of other Learn to Swim Programs into our own custom program. 

Class times are 50 minutes for ages 3 and over.  A color group system is used based on a few benchmark skills.  Please register by the appropriate color group.  On the first day of class, we will then place participants with instructors according to more specific abilities.  We have developed our program to emphasize parent involvement, safety, and small instructor to child ratios.

Registration Information

Please note the starting dates to begin registering at the Livonia Parks and Recreation Office for summer swim lesson registration.
