Sycamore Trails Aquatic Center Update

Miamisburg, Ohio – May 6, 2020:

The City of Miamisburg will keep its Sycamore Trails Aquatic Center closed in 2020.  City Manager Keith Johnson made the announcement today after reviewing the matter with the mayor and City Council at a study session last night.

The Aquatic Center is located at the corner of Heincke and Maue roads.  The decision not to open was made in response to the current COVID-19 restrictions in place across Ohio and the uncertainty about future social distancing requirements.

“This was a difficult decision for us, because we know that the facility is very popular in the community and a highlight of summer in Miamisburg,” Johnson said.  “Unfortunately, the state’s recent decision to extend its “stay-at-home” order to late May has significantly delayed our hiring and training process for the facility.  We also don’t know what kind of capacity issues might arise this summer due to social distancing requirements.  As a result of these obstacles, it just isn’t possible to have a viable season at Sycamore Trails.”

The city manager also said he wanted to make a decision as early as possible so that the City’s pool of seasonal employees has ample time to seek other employment.

Full refunds will be issued upon request. A refund in the form of a household credit can be used for a 2021 season pass next year. To request a refund, please send an email to Parksandrec@cityofmiamisburg.com Refunds will be processed in approximately 3-5 business days.
