Mayor Gabriel Rodriguez and the Board of Commissioners have announced the opening of the West New York Swim Club, which will start on May 29. The pool will open on weekends for residents only until June 26, and from that date forward it will operate seven days a week.
“We are pleased to announce the opening of the town pool for the 2021 summer season. As we continue working through the pandemic, we are happy to provide this season’s pool admission free of charge to all our West New York residents,” Rodriguez said.
“All visits shall be by way of reservation. Time slots and capacity will be limited to conform with guidelines and our new normal. We look forward to seeing our children enjoy our swim club this summer and thank all our residents for their patience and cooperation as we continue to move forward.”
Registration and residency required
Registration will be required, as COVID-19 restrictions limit the number of people who may be in the facility at one time. Register at westnewyorknj.org.
“Offering safe outdoor recreation activities during the summer months is imperative to the physical and mental wellbeing of our residents,” said Commissioner Cosmo Cirillo, who oversees the Division of Recreation. “We will have three daily sessions during our days of operation with time in between to sanitize. The hours of operation are from 10 a.m. to 8 p.m. Residents will be limited to one free three-hour session per day. We want our residents to beat the summer heat at our beautiful Swim Club and enjoy the splendid New York City view.”
Register via the registration portal; those not registered will not be allowed in. Capacity will be limited to 150 people per session.
Appointments will open a week before, so residents can schedule their visits. For help, call 201-295-5120.
“We have made significant investments in our swim club complex and are continuing to improve the facility for our West New York children and families,” said Commissioner Victor M. Barrera, who oversees Parks and Public Property. “We are all excited to welcome our residents this season!”
