Turtle Cove Aquatic Center & Metroparks Nature Centers Reopen
Lake Erie Wave Pool Seeks Lifeguards

[Southeast, Mich.] – The Covid-19 pandemic has led to a renewed interest in being outdoors, and as a result the Huron-Clinton Metroparks have seen ongoing increases in attendance at most facilities. They are proud that so many people across Southeast Michigan have continued to choose their favorite Metroparks as their “go-to” destination for summer fun. Starting July 1, you can add a few more facilities to your must-visit list.


Turtle Cove Family Aquatic Center Reopens July 1

Who’s ready to take a dip in the pool, race down the waterslides and float along the lazy river? Then you’ll be excited to read that Turtle Cove Family Aquatic Center in Lower Huron Metropark will reopen this Thursday, July 1!

  • Open from noon-7 p.m. Thursdays through Sundays.
  • Limited capacities until lifeguard staffing levels allow full capacities.
  • All water features including the waterslides, splash pad, lazy river, zero-depth pool and of course the dump bucket will be open.
  • Food & beverage concessions will be closed until further notice.
  • Pricing and more details can be found at https://www.metroparks.com/parks/lower-huron-metropark/lower-huron-metropark-activities/#10 on and after July 1.

Pools and Splash Pads Go Back to One Full Day Session and Higher Capacities

Turtle Cove isn’t the only spot in the Metroparks to cool down this summer – the splash pads in Kensington, Indian Springs and Lake St. Clair Metroparks and pools at Lake St. Clair and Willow Metroparks are all open for the season. Starting July 1, these facilities will go back to longer sessions with higher capacities. That means there’s even more time to splash and play at every visit.

The Great Wave Pool at Lake Erie Metropark remains closed. The Metroparks are still in need of lifeguards in order to open this facility. Metroparks is offering FREE American Red Cross certified lifeguard training to those interested in joining the team.

  • Must be at least 15 years of age to apply.
  • Free lifeguard course taking place July 5 – 7.
  • Apply online at www.Metroparks.com/hiring prior to the course to be considered.
  • Must be willing to work at Lake Erie Metropark Wavepool starting immediately after successful completion of the course.

Nature Centers Reopen to the Public

After more than a year of being closed, the nature centers and Marshlands Museum in the Metroparks are officially open to the public.  Visitors are welcomed back to enjoy the interactive displays, ask questions and discover more about the wildlife and history of our region. Lake St. Clair Metropark Nature Center has a brand-new look with displays that were unveiled virtually this year. Oakwoods Nature Center also boasts a completely renovated display area indoors. Take a trip and see them for yourself.
