New Aqua-Tots Swim School Is Open

Posted by – Shawn Keenan, Assistant City Planner

We’re happy to announce the opening of the new Aqua-Tots Swim School.  The school is located at 750 Brown Road, just south of the Meijer store.  Many people may remember the site as the former Applebee’s restaurant that was highly visible to motorists traveling northbound on I-75.

For those not familiar with the swim school, Aqua-Tots offers four swim programs (parent & tot, beginner, intermediate and advanced) designed to help children of all ages and abilities learn how to swim safely and develop a life-long love of swimming.

The facility has a large viewing area adjacent to the pool so that parents can watch their kids have fun while they learn to swim. Conveniently, Aqua-Tots even sells a variety of swimwear and other swimming accessories for the kids.

For more information about Aqua-Tots please visit or to register your kid(s) for a swim program, call 248-537-4005.

Construction Begins On Aqua-Tots Swim School

Posted by – Elizabeth Brennan, Executive Assistant

Demolition and construction are underway on the new Aqua-Tots Swim School, located in the former Applebee’s restaurant at 750 Brown Road.


Visible from I-75 just north of Joslyn Road, the building’s south wall has been demolished and underground site work has begun.  Footings will follow in preparation for the new walls and roof for the 2,700 sq. ft. addition.


Within the next few months, the building will be closed up and work will move inside on the interior renovation. Project completion is expected in early June.
