The North Bergen Municipal Pool will be opening with new guidelines and restrictions to help keep residents safe during the current health crisis. Due to the pandemic there will be no annual memberships this year. Instead the township will issue passes for individual sessions.
Only North Bergen residents will be admitted, and they will be REQUIRED to register in advance to use the pool during a specific time period. Registration will be online and can be done up to 24 hours in advance.
There will be three sessions per day. The cost for each session is $5 for adults, $3 for kids, and free for seniors ages 62 and older. 10 a.m. – 1 p.m. seniors only (no younger guests) 1:30 – 4:30 p.m. open to all ages 5 – 8 p.m. open to all ages
No walk-ups will be allowed; residents MUST register in advance. An online registration link will be provided later this week, along with a phone number for seniors, prior to the pool opening on June 22.
To ensure that everyone has the opportunity to enjoy the pool, attendees will not be permitted to visit two days in a row. Registration will be allowed every other day.
The snack bar will remain closed at this time. Residents are allowed to bring their own food.
The sports courts will remain closed.
Pool staff will be maintaining strict hygiene and cleaning common surfaces regularly. Everyone is expected to maintain appropriate social distance while on the premises.
