Status Update on Town Outdoor Pools and Splash Pads
The Town of Greenburgh Department of Parks and Recreation is planning to open the aquatic splash pads at Massaro Park and Yosemite Park on July 1st and the pool complex at Anthony F. Veteran Pool Park on Monday, July 6, 2020. The outdoor pool at Massaro Park will not open this season.
During the COVID-19 public health emergency, in order to operate aquatic splash pads and pools, all facilities must follow the New York State Department of Health guidance. Each facility must fill out a New York Forward Safety Plan that will describe how the town will comply with the COVID-19 Guidance, and submit a copy of the pool plan to the Westchester County Board of Health for review and approval before the county will issue a permit to operate pools this summer.

On a busy day the AFV Pool complex can accommodate up to 1,500 people, with a pool capacity of about 750 swimmers. The opening of the pool complex will require advance online reservations with a maximum of 300 people per swim session. There will be two swim sessions each day: from 9 a.m. to 1 p.m. and 2 p.m. to 6 p.m. At the end of the morning session, all patrons will have to leave the facility so staff can disinfect and clean rest rooms and grounds.
