SUNDAY1:00 pm – 6:00 pm

*Please note that our local summer camps and daycare centers use the pools from 10:00 am – 12:00 on Mondays through Fridays.


  1. thats great at the end of a heatwave to get the pools open now.... excellent job letting these kids sweaat it out all week unless they live near plainfield ave

  2. Rebecca, do you know if all the pools are open? They were supposed to be opened by July 1, and I know that Hannah Atkins and Seidler were not. I know Seidler was not open on July 6, so I was just wondering.

    I am wondering more if the citizens will get reimbursed for the days the pool was to be opened and was not. Where is the money going?

  3. To Anonymous at 3:29 PM and Anonymous at 7:56 PM:

    Hannah Atkins was open on Monday. On Tuesday, Rushmore opened as well. By Wednesday, all 3 were open. Apparently, there was a problem with the chemicals, which was resolved. They couldn't have anyone in the water while they were fixing whatever was wrong. Hopefully, there will be no more problems--I will update as necessary. I am not sure what you (7:56 PM) mean by "reimbursed"--you should contact the administration (Recreation Division) at (908) 753-3097 for clarification.


  4. Is there any cost to use the pools?? What are the rules??

  5. Jessica--contact Recreation at 908-753-3097 for info on fees, residency, etc.
