The weather outside still feels a little frightful. So, it might feel premature to think about swimming. But the first day of spring falls on Monday, March 20th. So, it’s not too early to remind you about the upcoming Westfield Memorial Pool season.
Westfield Memorial Pool 2023 Season
The Westfield Memorial Pool and Aquatic Center features a 50-meter pool as well as an 8-lane competitive lap pool. Additionally, you will find a dive pool, two water slides, a kids’ training pool (only two feet deep), and a zero-entry kids pool with an attached splash pad. The snack bar allows guests to keep up their energy for pool play. The grounds also offer a nice picnic area, playground, and grassy area.
Swimming provides an excellent form of exercise. Not only does it tone and strengthen your muscles, but it builds up your endurance, lowers your blood pressure, and helps relieve stress. The Westfield Recreation Department offers several swim classes from beginner to pro throughout the season. Plus, you may even reserve time to host your own private pool party for birthdays, anniversaries, company gatherings, and more.
The Westfield Memorial Pool officially opens up on Saturday, June 3rd, 2023. It remains operational through Monday, September 4th, 2023 (Labor Day). Between June 3rd and June 21st, the pool stays open from 4 pm to 8 pm during the week and 10 am to 7:30 pm on weekends and holidays. After June 21st, the pool hours change to 12 pm to 8 pm during the week and 10 am to 7:30 pm on weekends and holidays.
If you are a returning member, you can renew your membership at the Recreation Department yourself or you may renew online here. You must sign into your account first. Then click on “Westfield Memorial Pool” near the top of the page and select “Pool Memberships”. Follow the prompts to complete the process. You have until 4 pm on April 5th, 2023 to renew your membership or else you forfeit it and it goes to someone on the waitlist. This is only available to returning 2022 members. If you did not have a paid membership in 2022, you become a “new member”.
All membership spots filled up last year. So, if you wish to become a new member in 2023, you need to put your name on the waitlist. When a membership opens up, the Recreation Department will notify you.
Starting at 10 am on May 22nd, you may purchase guest passes online. Or you can wait until June 3rd and purchase them in person at the pool. Guest passes for members are just $12 per person. If you come without a paid member, you pay $45 per person.
