Congratulations to the Middletown Recreation and Parks Department on the Grand Opening of the War Veterans Memorial Pool!

It was a wonderful morning, with the water glistening as the crowd gathered. The Pool, which cost 1.4 Million Dollars in restorations, will now be opening to the general public after it had been closed in 2010. Not only were the pool and bathhouse reconstructed, but a water deck with multiple fountains and water attractions has been added where the kiddie pool once sat. The project was originally to be covered largely by the city, with grant from the State of New York covering part of the bill. The project was also given a $200,000 donation by the Richard Rowley Family, who were also present at the Press Conference and Ribbon Cutting this morning. Also in attendance at the Press Conference was the Mayor Of Middletown, Joseph M. DeStefano; The Superintendent of Recreation & Parks, Tom Elwood; and Senator of New York, John Bonacic.

The pool has officially been opened to the public, and is open daily from 12 PM to 6 PM. The cost for a day pass is $1 for Children and $3 for Adults. The cost for a 30 day pass is $23 for Children and $60 for Adults. There will also be a free swim, Tuesdays & Thursdays from 9 to 11 AM.
