Hackettstown Recreation News


After much thought, discussions and consideration, it has been decided that the Hackettstown Pool will remain closed for the 2020 season. This decision was not at all an easy one to make, however the following had to be considered.               

First and foremost, the health and safety of everyone who utilizes the Hackettstown Pool, both Hackettstown residents and visitors from out of the area. As well as the employees and staff of the pool and Town. 

The logistics of monitoring the restrictions of COVID -19; reduced capacity of attendance, social distancing, maintaining restrooms, locker rooms, etc. with the increased restrictive policies, would be cost prohibitive and extremely difficult to maintain the quality daily operations of the pool. 

Again, our ultimate goal is the health and safety of all concerned. We wish everyone a healthy summer and look forward to the 2021 Hackettstown Pool Season.
