2020 Pool hours have been divided into two sessions: On Mondays the A.M. session is from 12:00 to 4:00 p.m. while the P.M. session is from 5:00 to 9:00 p.m. Tuesday through Sunday, the A.M. session is from 9:00 a.m. to 2:00 p.m. while the P.M. session is from 3:00 to 8:00 p.m. The Pool will be closed one hour between sessions for cleaning.
To reserve a session, members will be allowed to sign up via online (www.gcreconline.gardencityny.net) or by phone (465-4074) two days in advance beginning each morning at 8:30 a.m. Reservations for the AM sessions begin at 8:30 a.m. and reservations for the PM sessions begin at 10:30 a.m. The reservation is good for any time during the chosen session; members do not have to come to the Pool at the opening of the session. Each session will have a strict limit of members.
To accommodate those members having difficulties reserving a session swim time, we have introduced a same day walk up policy. Members have the opportunity to come to the Pool Office to check availability of the sessions as follows: For the morning session, walk-ins are allowed beginning at 12:00 p.m. For the afternoon session, walk-ins are allowed beginning at 6:00 p.m. Admission for walk-ins is dependent upon how many people are in the Pool at the start of the walk in time. We cannot exceed our allowed capacity, so walk-ins will be on an “as available” basis. This process begins at 12:00 p.m. Tuesday through Sunday during the AM session and 6:00 p.m. Tuesday through Sunday during the PM session. On Mondays, we will begin this process at 2:00 p.m. for the AM Session and 7:00 p.m. on the PM session. Remember, walk in admission is ONLY based on availability and entrance is NOT guaranteed. This policy began Wednesday, July 15.
If you joined the pool and do not have a password, visit the Recreation and Parks Office at 108 Rockaway Avenue to obtain one.
A cancellation/wait list policy began Wednesday, July 15. To see if there is availability on the wait list, please call 465-4074. Due to CDC regulations, we are limited as to how many individuals are allowed in the Pool facility during a session. If you are unable to attend a session you already signed up for please call the Pool Office at 465-4074 to cancel. As registration closes we will keep a wait list for each session and call those members as spots become available.
This year marks the 64th year of operation of the Garden City Pool. More than just a standard municipal pool this facility continues to maintain a “Club Like” atmosphere with landscaped grounds, shade structures, and of course the interactive play pool and slides. We are “Fun in the Sun!”
Please note that the Garden City Pool does not have daily passes. Memberships are only for residents of the Inc Village of Garden City only.
One of the great traditions we have at the Pool are our Swim Teams. Through the years we have won many championships but most importantly had a lot of fun. Visit our Aquatic Sports page for additional details.
