Outdoor pool area repairs and early closure
Dear Sparrow Michigan Athletic Club Members,
Due to unforeseen structural damage identified in early March on the waterslide we will need to shut down the outdoor pool dome for major repair work four weeks earlier than expected so we can safely remove the dome and have the slide and outdoor pools area ready for summer.
To complete the work the Outdoor Pool area will need to be closed Saturday April 5, 2014 – Wednesday May 6th, 2014 for sand blasting and structural repair work. Following the repair work on Thursday, May 7th we will begin taking down the dome and preparing the pools area for summer operations. The outdoor lap pool will re-open May 12th, and the water slide/leisure pool will re-open Friday May 23, 2014 for Memorial Weekend.
Shutting down an area of the MAC is never a popular or desired choice, but after exploring every option, with all the experts locally and around the country; this is the best option to ensure safe slide and operating outdoor pools ready for the summer.
Please continue to check with the Service and Concierge desk for any schedule changes at #364-8888 or the MAC Facebook page.
We are looking forward to a wonderful summer at the Sparrow Michigan Athletic Club and apologize for any inconvenience this may cause as we work quickly to repair the area.
Thank you for your patience,
Executive Director, Strategic Wellness & Michigan Athletic Club
