|Safety Notice for Open & Family Swim
No one under the age of 13 is allowed in the pool without an adult present inside the gate/pool area at all times. Please do not leave your children unattended at any park facilities. Lifeguards are watching swimmers, not the visitors to the park or pool areas.
Think Safety First-Avoid Pool Accidents
Pool accidents occur on the deck and in the shallow water through simple carelessness, horseplay and running. Please make sure your child obeys, understands and respects our pool rules. They ensure everyone’s protection and enjoyment.
Seasonal Pool Pass
If you intend on using the pool by yourself or with your family during the summer months, do the math. It saves you money if you purchase a season pass. Example: (resident) 2 adults and 2 children = $20. per visit, multiply that by 4 days per week = $80. per week. Multiply that by 10 weeks = $800.00! Now take a look at the season packages below…
||10% of regular price
|Family up to 4
||10% of regular price
|$25 for each additional family member
Season passes are available in the Supervisor's Office located at the Town of Mamakating Town Hall, 2948 Route 209, Wurtsboro, NY. For more information call: 888-3000
Daily Pool Pass: Resident - $5. Non-Resident - $7.(You must supply proof of residency! )
Any suggestions for your town pool or park? Let the pool attendant know and she will pass them along to the Supervisors office. Thank you for your input!
We are going to try an experiment here at the town pool: You may bring your own yard/beach chairs on the pool deck (and of course on the grass area) for your comfort and relaxation. However, they MUST remain against the pool deck fence!!! For safety and rescue reasons, we will be placing a limit on how many chairs are allowed inside the pool area at one time. We understand you want to be more comfortable while watching your children play in the water – we also understand that safety comes first. Remember: keep chairs and belongings up against fence!

Large groups are ten or more people brought to the pool at one time. Large groups are permitted only with the permission of the Supervisor’s Office/Pool Management. Pool Management must determine whether another large group is scheduled at that time, whether management can provide adequate supervision (lifeguards) and whether the large group will place an undue burden upon pool operations or will interfere with public enjoyment of the pool.
Requests for attendance of a large group should be made to Supervisor’s Office/Pool Management at least 1 week in advance. Requests for attendance of a large group are not “reservations” for exclusive use of the facility. You must share the pool with other residents.
Should the pool become overcrowded at any time, the lifeguards or pool management may temporarily limit the number of swimmers.
All people using the pool do so at their own risk. The Town of Mamakating assumes no responsibility for any accident, injury or illness in connection with such use.
