Merritt Athletic Club Announces Pool Grand Opening at Towson Location

New Family-Friendly Complex Will Feature Two 18-Foot Slides

Towson, Md. – May 13, 2013 – Merritt Athletic Clubs, an industry and community leader in health and fitness, today announced the near completion of a New family-fun pool complex at its Towson location. The pool is scheduled to open late May with a grand opening party on Saturday, June 15, 2013 12 to 5 p.m. The multi-million dollar expansion became possible when Merritt acquired the land adjacent to its current Towson fitness center, located at 8757 Mylander Lane, Towson,MD.

The outdoor complex will include a large family pool, a baby pool and two 18-foot water slides. The main pool will be the equivalent of a six-lane pool, though it will not be set up for laps and a smaller children’s pool will contain a fun dolphin sculpture that squirts water. A large clubhouse will contain lockers, bathrooms and an outdoor grille serving food from Panache Fine catering. Next to the pool will be a grassy sports court for children to play on.

On-air personalities “Priestly and Jenn” from MIX 106.5 will broadcast live from the pool, while Merritt Athletic Club representatives will be available to answer any community questions. Activities will include swim lesson demos with the Michael Phelps Swim School, yoga, mini Olympics, and face painting. Surrounding the pool will be 150 chairs for pool-goers to lounge and relax on.

“We are excited to expand our Towson location and offer more amenities to our members,” said Donyel Cerceo, Marketing Director at Merritt. “There is a lot of excitement from our members about the new pool and I think everyone will agree that this takes our Towson location to the next level. We’re not just about working out; Merritt Athletic also provides a great atmosphere for families to relax and enjoy the season.”

Merritt Athletic features a similar outdoor pool complex at its Eldersburg location, and outdoor pools at the athletic clubs in Canton and on Fort Avenue in Locust Point. Regular hours of the pool will be Monday through Friday from 11 a.m. to 9 p.m. and on Saturday and Sunday from 11 a.m. to 7 p.m.

Pricing and more information can be found at or by calling the Towson location on (410) 821-0160.
