Outdoor Pools Are now closed until Summer 2024

The City of Livonia operates three outdoor pools. These pools offer swim lessons, open swimming, private rentals, and special events. 

Hours and capacities are subject to change based on staffing. Safety is our number one priority, and we continue to make adjustments to provide a safe swimming environment for the public.

Summer 2023 POOL Hours

We have established open swim blocks at Botsford and Clements Circle Pools for Summer 2023. Where listed, the pool will close between open swim blocks to allow staff to clean the facility. Patrons will be required to exit the facility. They may return for the second block if they wish.

Pools close 15 minutes before the block ending/closing time.
