Resident rates reduced at all outdoor pools
DEARBORN – Residents can look forward to even more ways to cool off from the hot sun this summer, as Lapeer Park has been cleared to open beginning July 18.
Lapeer Pool will operate on Saturdays, Mondays and Wednesdays.
In order to open the Lapeer Park neighborhood pool, lifeguards must be shared with Ten Eyck pool. So Ten Eyck pool will no longer be open seven days a week, but will still offer swimming on Sundays, Tuesdays, Thursdays and Fridays.
The new Ford Woods pool complex in the east end will continue to operate seven days per week.
All pools will be open on their respective days from noon to 8 p.m. All residents are welcome at all city pools.
In addition, the price of entry to the pools has recently been lowered for residents.
Daily rates for the neighborhood pool at Ten Eyck and Lapeer parks are $3 for residents, $7 for guests of a resident, and $12 for nonresidents.
Daily fees for the Ford Woods Pool are $5 for residents, $9 for guests of a resident, and $14 for nonresidents.
Also open are three splash pads at Hemlock, Whitmore-Bolles and Crowley parks. The splash pads are free and operate 9 a.m. to 8 p.m. every day. Residents are advised to use caution in light of the COVID-19 pandemic.
Public health protocols are required at all Dearborn pools. Capacity is limited to 50 percent, and masks must be worn to enter or exit the pool area, and at any time while patrons are walking around. Patrons must stay 6 feet away from anyone not in their household, both in and out of the water. At Ford Woods, temperature checks are required before entering the pool’s bathhouse.
