Community Park Pool Season Extended Until September 16

The Princeton Recreation Department is extending the Community Park Pool season past Labor Day this year. The pool will be open from noon to 5 p.m. on the weekends of September 8-9  and September 15-16.

Also, beginning August 20th through Labor Day, the pool complex will close a half hour early, at 7:30 p.m., because of earlier sunset times.

All pool memberships will continue to be valid through the extra weekend dates, and daily admission rates will still be in effect. The wading pool program and adult/senior lap swim programs will not be in effect for the two additional weekends, but the dedicated lap lane will remain open. The snack bar will be open, weather permitting.

Normally the pool complex closes for the season on Labor Day, though some years the season has been extended.

“This is a service that we have offered in some previous seasons that we were not able to offer in 2011 due to our construction schedule,” Recreation Director Ben Stentz said. “Once school begins, It’s extremely hard for us to round up enough lifeguards to staff a facility as big as the Community Park Pool, but we are working hard already to at least get enough staff to open from 12 to 5 on these weekends. I certainly hope the pool community will get a chance to enjoy one last swim in the new pool on these weekends before we winterize the facility.”
