Everyone is welcome to join The Pool!!

Visit 'Pool Hours' page for latest opening days and times.

Current NJ Department of Health guidance for capacity limit = 500-person entry.

To allow all pool members the opportunity to use the pool with the current capacity limits, and to avoid the need for general entry on-line scheduling, our opening guidelines are:

  • Individual (non-contact) entry and exit sign-in and sign-out

  • 3-hour maximum pool visit session.  Members are asked to self-regulate their 3 hours using an honesty system.  Recommend you set a 3 -hour reminder on your phone/watch.

  • This Pool health waiver (click here to download) will need to be completed before entry to The Pool. Please print off, sign and bring to the pool upon your first visit.

  • 45-min individual lap lane usage within lap pool.  We are in the process of developing a sign-up process to avoid waiting queues

We will be monitoring the capacity flow and adjust accordingly as needed.
