To open Polygon Testing Grounds 9, you must first visit another facility. You can enter through a manhole cover in the town in front of the red building or swim up through the pipe in the lake.

Head to the tower at the lake's edge and hack into a camera. Point it at the statue in town and open the door to Testing Grounds 9. The door is actually in the wooden shed to the statue's left. Take the elevator and enter the facility.
