1. Look for an alert like this at the top of the page:

If an event, program, or facility is cancelled/closed due to weather, an alert will be posted at the top of the website on all pages. If no alert is visible, all is on as scheduled.

Outdoor Sports

Weekday Sports Camps & Evening Leagues

The Recreation Department will make decisions on the status of games/programs up to 4 pm. After 4 pm, report to the site and a decision will be made by officials/program leaders on status/playability of games/camps.   

If the Oakland County tornado siren sounds signifying a tornado warning, all games/programs will automatically cease.

Troy Family Aquatic Center


The decision to close the facility for inclement weather is based on the severity of weather.

  • Light Rain/Low Temperatures: If it’s lightly raining/misting, we will remain open. Lower temperatures may keep guests away, so we may close due to low patronage in these scenarios.
  • Thunder & Lightning: Lightning is dangerous while swimming. The facility will close for 30 minutes per incident of lightning or thunder. All patrons must exit during these closures, but may re-enter if the storm passes.
  • Heavy Rain & Thunderstorms: We will close for the day if the radar shows prolonged thunderstorms. We must close if it is raining so hard that lifeguards cannot see the bottom of the pool

Indoor Programs

The following is the Troy Recreation Department Weather Policy for snow, frigid temperatures, road conditions, etc:

When Troy Schools are closed due to inclement weather:

  • Rainbow Preschool is closed for the entire day
  • All programs and leagues held at school facilities are canceled until further notice. Evening programs will follow Troy School District re-opening schedule
