The North Bergen municipal pool will be open to North Bergen residents only beginning Saturday, June 26, Mayor Nicholas Sacco and Parks Commissioner Hugo Cabrera have announced.
Like last year, due to the COVID-19 pandemic, there will be no annual memberships. Instead, the township will issue daily passes for individual three-hour sessions.
The first session will run from 9:30 a.m. to 12:30 p.m. This will be for seniors only ages 62 and older. Admission is free; no younger guests. Only the lap pool will be open.
The second session will run from 12:45 to 3:45 p.m. The third session will run from 4 to 7 p.m. During these times, the pool will be open to all ages.
