I took a trip to Southfield Municipal Complex to review the pool and ice arena facilities and tour the grounds to extol the amenities the complex provides for kids and families (for both residents and non-residents).
Southfield Civic Center Pool Info
Southfield Sports Arena features an Olympic-size pool with a capacity of 800. A large patio adorns the gigantic pool making it an ideal place to relax on hot summer days. The lane-swimming / lap-swimming portion of the pool ranges at an average of 4 feet deep. The pool has a “deep end” / 10 feet-deep section of the pool (roped-off) that has a fun aqua climbing wall. A 120-foot waterslide is near the deep end to provide more aquatic thrills. Don’t worry about safety – there are lifeguard stands situated around the entire perimeter of the pool.
For less-experienced swimmers, a separate spray pool is nearby. The spray pool is 1 foot deep and has a fun bubbler that stirs up the water like a jacuzzi!

The Southfield Municipal Complex also features a special baseball diamond for Miracle League of Michigan Baseball – an organization that provides children with special needs an opportunity to play organized baseball. Complete with a padded field, this wheelchair friendly field is a shining example of the variety of diverse activities that can be found at the complex.
