WEST NEW YORK, N.J. — Mayor Gabriel Rodriguez and the Board of Commissioners are excited to announce the opening of the West New York Swim Club for the summer 2021 season, which will start on May 29. The West New York Swim Club will open on weekends only until June 26th and from that date forward it will operate seven (7) 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,” said Mayor Gabriel Rodriguez. “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.”
Admission will only be allowed for Town of West New York residents this summer due to the global health pandemic. As a result of the pandemic, Mayor Gabriel Rodriguez and the Board of Commissioners are offering free admission to our residents, only for this summer season. Registration will be required, as COVID-19 restrictions limit the amount of individuals who may be in the facility at any given time. Residents may register via the town’s website www.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 10:00AM to 8:00PM, and 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.”
It is imperative that residents register via the registration portal, families and individuals not registered will not be allowed in the facility. Capacity will be limited to 150 people per session. Appointments will open to the public a week before, so residents have ample time to schedule their visit. The Town can help guide your registration by calling the Division of Recreation at 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,” added Commissioner Victor M. Barrera, who oversees Parks and Public Property. “We are all excited to welcome our residents this season!”
