Collingswood's Roberts Pool is open with social distancing procedures in place.
Following NJ Executive Order 153 Collingswood opened Roberts Pool for the season on Friday, July 3, 2020. Memberships can be purchased at the pool during regular hours. There will be no limitations on membership sales. Borough officials do not anticipate having to limit capacity. Except on the hottest and busiest days, the attendance at Roberts Pool does not typically exceed the maximum allowance under state regulations. At this time, there will be no day bands sales. Guest passes are available to those that attend with a member only. More info on memberships, guest passes and pricing below.
"We do not anticipate having to limit access to the pool on a daily basis in order to meet the 50 percent occupancy standard. Roberts Pool capacity is very big and we rarely get close to 50 percent occupancy on the hottest weekends. Guests will be much more spread out than in previous seasons but otherwise sales and access to the pool will be very similar to regular operation," said Collingswood Mayor James Maley. "In order to follow safety guidelines members will, however, notice several changes in 2020 that will make this season different than previous years."
To reduce touchpoints and keep staff and guests safe, no chairs, picnic tables or umbrellas will be supplied. Guests are welcome to bring their own blankets and chairs but outside umbrellas are not permitted. Concession stand will not be open. Guests must be 15 or older to attend without a guardian. State guidelines provide that guests must remain socially distant by spreading out in areas at least six feet apart and remaining socially distant in the water. Capacity limit in the baby pool will be enforced. Guests must enter the pool through the main gate and exit through the gate located near the concession stand. Cloth face coverings are encouraged when not in the pool and where social distancing of six feet cannot be maintained. These rules may be adjusted as we receive new state guidelines.
The Borough will employ social distancing ambassadors and has added additional bathroom cleaning and checks for the 2020 season. One guest/family at a time in the restrooms. Footwear must be worn in restrooms at all times. There will be no adult swim periods during regular hours.
