Adult, kiddie pools open and functional after improvements.
After months of renovations that closed the fields and, for a time, the basketball courts to the public, Memorial Park and Pool is ready for summer.
The adult pool was newly tiled and the pool has been filled with water. New fencing was added around the expanded pool deck area.
The kiddie pool was raised to the same level as the main pool, where it used to be located at the bottom of a steep slope, and a large water feature was installed and is operational.
The basketball court was repaved and repainted. Paving was done through the borough's shared service with Summit for only a few hundred dollars, according to Chatham Borough Council President James Lonergan.
Fees for joining the Chatham Borough Municipal Pool are as follows:
|Family Fee, non-resident||$525|
|Senior Citizen (65 and over)||$60|
|Senior Citizen, non-resident||$90|
|Au Pair, non-resident||$100|

Swim lesson registration begins Wednesday for all children who will be 4 years old before June 25, when lessons begin. Swim lessons run Monday though Friday for three consecutive weeks. Residents must submit birth certificates for their children at the time of registration.
The pool opens weekends beginning May 26 and fulltime in late June.
