Groveport Aquatics Center - Temporarily Closed

The Groveport Recreation Department is sorry to inform you, but the Groveport Aquatic Center (Outdoor Water Park) will be TEMPORARILY SUSPENDING OPERATION on June 6, 2019. The facility will remain closed until an outside firm locates the source or sources of a substantial water leak and can make necessary repairs.


The water level at the outdoor pool was fine at the end of the 2018 outdoor pool season. The leak was found in mid-May during the fill of the 450,000 gallon pool. City staff along with scuba divers could not locate the leak. A firm was hired to locate the leak(s), but was not able to fit us into their schedule until early June. The City of Groveport decided to open the pool despite the leak to give our residents and customers an opportunity to enjoy the facility.


The City will also notify Season Pass Holders when the pool is back open for use. Please stay tuned to our website (www.groveportrec.com) and Facebook page (www.facebook.com/GroveportRecreationDepartment) for updates.


The City of Groveport will calculate time lost and provide Season Pass Holders with a pro-rated refund.


We apologize for this inconvenience. This is the first time in our 16 years of operation that we have experienced such a leak. Although unpreventable, they are common, especially given the size and age of our facility, and the freeze thaw cycle in our Ohio winters.


Thank you for your understanding and patronage,

City of Groveport – Recreation Department
