Town Swimming Pools and Summer Recreation Camp
Due to the coronavirus it was determined that the town will not be able to safely open and operate the town pools this year or operate the Summer Recreation Program. It was a difficult decision the Town Board had to make; however, based on the current health crisis and operating criteria for these activities it was made on the side of caution for the safety of our residents, participants and staff.
Our Recreation Department is putting together a number of programs and activities that residents will be able to sign up for and participate in during the summer months. These activities will be posted on the town website and Facebook. If you have any questions about the activities, please call the Recreation Department at 845-534-2070.
