8/9 – County Park System Opens Pool at Former Ft. Monmouth Rec Center

August 9, 2014

TINTON FALLS — The Monmouth County Park System has revitalized the swimming pool at the Fort Monmouth Recreation Center to make it available for use for a wide variety of programs and summer camps offered each year.

Acquired last year from the Fort Monmouth Economic Revitalization Authority (FMERA), the recreation center included amenities such as classrooms, a gymnasium, a game room and an outdoor swimming pool, making it a location for an array of activities.

In mid-July, necessary improvements were made and the pool opened for use by some of the recreation center’s summer campers.

The pool will be open for the public to enjoy an open swim from 10 a.m. to 2 p.m. Saturday, Aug. 16. The cost is $15 per family of four and $5 each additional person; cash or check only. No rafts will be permitted.

The recreation center is located at 2566 Guam Ave.

Additional information is available by visiting www.monmouthcountyparks.com or calling 732-842-4000, ext. 4312. People with hearing impairment may call the TTY/TDD number at 711.

  1. $15 bucks+ to take the family for a swim in a county owned pool??? Since we already pay county taxes, the pool should be free to use.
