Summit Metro Parks We're Your Back Yard


Swim discontinued in SMP

After careful consideration, the Board of Park Commissioners has determined that Summit Metro Parks will no longer operate its swim areas at Munroe Falls Metro Park and Silver Creek Metro Park, effective with the 2022 season. This decision was made due to significant declines in attendance, ongoing lifeguard staffing challenges and other concerns.

We understand this change may be difficult for some of our visitors. As stewards of public dollars, we take our responsibility to Summit County taxpayers very seriously. This decision allows the park district to focus its resources on amenities the public is more likely to use and enjoy, based on visitation data and public input. As the community evolves, we evolve with it. We will continue to keep you informed of developments throughout the master planning process for these parks.
