Nearly three weeks after its planned opening for the season, the South Orange main pool remains closed because of a delayed filter replacement project.
The good news is that the intermediate and baby pools will be open this weekend, Saturday and Sunday from noon to 8 p.m.; the concession stand also will be open.
In addition, South Orange pool members will once again be invited to use the Maplewood Pool, as they were last weekend.
“Maplewood has been a marvelous partner in allowing our residents to use their pool, and this weekend, our South Orange children’s pools are open, so residents have options in both community pools,” Hilton said.
The Maplewood Community Pool is located at 187 Boyden Avenue; weekend hours are 10:00 am-8:00 pm Saturday and Sunday. Access to the South Orange OR Maplewood pools requires a current 2018 South Orange Recreation I.D. Badge, which can be purchased or renewed at The Baird Center Monday-Thursday, 9:00 am-9:30 pm and Friday-Saturday, 9:00 am-4:30 pm.
Hilton said there was not yet an estimate on when the main pool would reopen. For more updates, check the Village website or follow on Twitter @SOPool.
