Newly renovated South End Pool to open Friday


SPRING LAKE — The borough will kick off the beginning of Memorial Day weekend on Friday evening with the unveiling of the newly renovated South End Pool.

A ribbon-cutting ceremony will be held on Friday, May 28 at 5 p.m. at the facility. All residents are invited to attend and encouraged to bring their bathing suits. The borough will also hold a raffle for the first child to go down the slide into the new activity pool.

“There are an awful lot of people who really helped this facility to come alive on time and we’d really like to recognize them and to celebrate the beginning of summer,” Mayor Jennifer Naughton said at Tuesday night’s council meeting.


“We’re very excited to be opening up the South End Pool and Pavilion Friday,” Council President Brendan Judge said, adding that any resident, with or without a pool/beach badge, is invited to the opening.

The North and South End Pools and Pavilions will officially open for the season the following day, May 29, from 8 a.m. to 6 p.m. The daily hours will change to 7 a.m. to 8 p.m. beginning June 19.

“We’re excited about that and we’re excited for the summer. Our team has worked really, really hard,” to prepare for the beginning of the summer season, Mayor Naughton said.

The borough’s beaches will also open and be guarded on weekends beginning May 29. Badges will only be required on the weekends until June 19 when the beach will be open and guarded daily through Labor Day.
