Southfield Sports Arena

The Southfield Sports Arena pool is inoperable and will not be open for the 2022 season.

The pool is over 50 years old.  Given the age of the pools’ mechanics and filter system as well as the structural integrity, the pool is no longer safe to operate. The estimated cost for replacing and repairing those elements is over $2.5 million. In addition, the current pool is archaically designed, does not meet ADA accessibility requirements, and does not meet our residents’ needs. Our Master Plan process outlined our residents’ desire for an indoor pool.

An Aquatic/Pool Study is scheduled for July/August to research and evaluate our next steps.

In the meantime, we have listed local pool locations, fees and times as options for you and your family.

Note: Also, all residents are welcome to swim at the City of Oak Park Pool located at 14300 Oak Park Blvd. The City of Southfield and the City of Oak Park are working on an intergovernmental agreement that would allow our residents to use their Aquatic Facility at resident rates.  Please refer to our website for current updates.
