Press Releases

For Immediate Release: Thursday, July 16, 2020

Montgomery County residents will be able to use County pools using daily admission rates starting on Monday, July 20. Entrance to Montgomery County Recreation pools has been limited due to County Phase 2 reopening guidelines relating to the COVID-19 health crisis.

Daily admission rates for County residents will be $7 for adults, $6 for seniors 55 and over and $5 for children 17 and under.  

Residents also can pre-purchase a single-session pass online for $6. This will allow residents to reserve their desired two-hour pool session in advance. While walkups will be admitted, residents with reservations and pass holders will have priority. The number of available walkup daily admission slots will depend on the number of reservations and pool capacity.

Adults must provide proof of County residency at the time of entry. Residents who did not purchase session passes in advance, upon entering the pool area, must complete a contact form including the names of all household members, a phone number and their address. This information will only be used by County health officials if necessary.

Outdoor pools are open for two-hour sessions of recreational swimming and limited lap swimming between noon and 8 p.m. seven days a week. The Long Branch Outdoor Pool will begin offering one-hour, mid-morning lap swimming sessions on July 20.

Indoor aquatic centers are open for lap swimming only. The centers are open for two-hour sessions between 6 a.m. and 8 p.m. Monday through Friday, and between 9 a.m. and 5 p.m. on Saturday and Sunday.
