Ficano proposes closing Chandler Park Family Aquatic Center

DETROIT (WXYZ) - It's tough to hear during a heat wave but Wayne County Executive Robert Ficano says he wants to close Detroit's only water park.

The Chandler Park Family Aquatic Center is on the city's east side. Ficano says closing it would save Wayne County one million dollars.

The county is facing a $160 million deficit.

This is just one of several controversial cuts outlined before the Wayne County Commission. The commission does not need to approve the closure, but Detroit commissioners are upset suburban facilities aren't being targeted.
