Municipal Pool Committee - Home
Welcome to the Paramus Municipal Pool!
Established in 1964, the Paramus Municipal Pool is the gem of Paramus, New Jersey. Membership is open to Paramus Residents (proof of residency required) and out-of-town individuals / families (with a Paramus resident / pool member sponsor at the out-of-town rate). A discount price is available for Senior Citizens, Paramus volunteers and Veterans (more information can be obtained from the pool office). The Paramus Pool provides a fun summer experience for all ages!
Our facility consists of three swimming pools, a large grass area, recreation area, volleyball, shuffleboard, playground and shade tents.
Our "main pool" is 50 meters long ranging in depth from 3 feet to 5 feet. Children must be 3 years old or older to use the main pool and no swim diapers are permitted. Swim lanes are provided for lap swimming. The attached diving well has a 1-meter springboard for jumping or diving and a 3-meter "high" diving board for jumping only. Additionally we offer a water slide with two loops of fun before splashing into the water (diving well). A swim test is required for use of the diving board and slide. Minimum age 8 years old.
Our "intermediate" pool is for younger swimmers. It is 25 meters long and is shallow across the whole pool; ranging in depth from 3 feet at both ends to 4 feet in the middle. "Swimmies" are permitted in this pool. Children must be 3 years of age or older for use of the intermediate pool and no swim diapers are permitted.
Our "kiddie" pool is a new addition, constructed in 2008. It has a graduated walk-in entry to allow easy access for both children and parents. The kiddie pool also has several water features including a water "mushroom" and "water piping" system where children can control the water flow. The young ones enjoy turning the wheels that control the water pressure and location on this feature. Shade tents are provided in this fenced-in kiddie pool area to provide a comfortable experience for your family.
The Paramus Pool has a successful competitive summer swim / diving program - the Paramus Pacers. We also offer swimming and diving lessons. The swim/dive team and lessons require Pool membership and are an additional charge. Private swim lessons are also available on an individual basis - additional information can be obtained through the Pool Manager.
During the summer the Pool offers a variety of "special events" including "pre-teen nights" (ages 13 and under), family day, senior citizen day and other special events. Keep an eye on our events page and the bulletin board at the pool for our schedule.
The Paramus Pool also offers a full service snack bar, open daily from 9 am, with a wide variety of menu choices.
We hope you enjoy your summer at the Paramus Pool!!
