[ARCHIVED] Explanation of Nixon Water Park closure in summer 2021

Nixon Water Park

The City of Jackson has been getting questions from residents about why the Nixon Water Park is closed again this summer. It mostly comes down to timing and COVID-19 pandemic restrictions. This past spring, a time when staff spend time prepping the water park to open, Michigan was under stricter COVID-19 guidelines that would have prevented the pool from fully opening. When precautions were lifted last month, staff were already several months behind in the opening process. It typically takes up to two months to prepare the water park for an opening to ensure everything is working properly.

It also would have taken considerable time to hire enough lifeguards to make sure families had safe visits to the pool. It is difficult to wear a face covering while using the water park, so we had safety concerns about having unmasked visitors in close proximity.

The City understands the disappointment that some residents have about not being able to enjoy the water park. We’re currently doing everything we can right now to make sure the Nixon Water Park opens in 2022. Thank you for your patience and understanding.
