Wading Pools

The Township operates 9 Wading Pools (also known as sprinkler pools) conveniently located in a number of parks throughout the township. They are open during the summer months beginning June 29 to September 4 of 2015.  As the name implies, wading pools are not deep enough for actual swimming but they are a great way for our younger residents to cool off during the summer months.  Water emanates into the pool from a permanent pool fixture with water constantly flowing.  As part of the town’s way of conserving water, wading pools are not turned on unless residents are there to use the pool.  If you notice a green flag flying at the pool, the pool is open. Simply ask the attendant to turn the water on for your enjoyment.  Wading pool attendants are not lifeguards but are there to enforce rules and ensure safety.
