If the heatwave gets to you, you can cool off with a dip in the pool at Community Park
The recreation department is opening the pool today and tomorrow from 3 to 8 p.m. because of the heatwave that is expected in New Jersey over the next two days.
All membership requirements and daily admission rate requirements will be in effect. There will not be any adult or senior lap swim on Wednesday or Thursday, but the lap lane will be open as it is on a regular pool day. The concession stand will be open both days.
Opening the pool on weekdays this early in the season is a challenge because most of the recreation department lifeguards and customer service staff are high school students and have school, sports and other work commitments.
The pool will be closed Friday and will reopen on the weekend. Weekend pool hours are 11 am – 8 pm Saturday & Sunday, June 11 & 12.
The Community Park Pool opens full-time, seven days a week, beginning Wednesday June 15.
