We are happy to announce that our wading pools and spray park will be opening on Wednesday, June 30! The residents who use our wading pools and splash park are 12 years of age and under. They are unable to be vaccinated and therefore, we want to help prevent them from getting and/or spreading the covid virus. For this reason, we are urging everyone who is not fully vaccinated to wear a mask when entering the pool area. We have limited the number of people who use the pools/splash park to make social distancing possible.
All registration takes place at the Recreation Center (located at the bottom of Stillwell Avenue.) PLEASE, registration for badges will be held weekdays from Monday, June 14 to Friday, June 25 from 9am-7pm. In addition, there will be a special Saturday registration on June 26 from 12-6pm. Thereafter, registration will be held from 9am-3:30pm weekdays for the duration of the summer. A photo ID and Proof of +Fort Lee residency will be required at time of registration. This includes a lease, deed, property tax bill, maintenance agreement, most recent cancelled rent or maintenance check, or a current Fort Lee Driver’s License. UTILITY BILLS WILL NOT BE ACCEPTED. A signed waiver will also be required, holding the Borough of Fort Lee harmless for use of the pools/spraypark.
To expedite the in-person registration to obtain badges in order to use the pools and spray park, we ask that you do the following:
Read the rules carefully as they have changed from previous years.
Read the COVID-19 liability waiver for your household before completing it.
Complete the pool registration form.

Membership for Fort Lee Wading Pools / Spray Park is available to Fort Lee Residents Only. Each adult resident of a household will be asked to read the rules and agree to follow them by signing a form at time of registration. Upon registration, an adult resident will be assigned 4 badges with the same number on them. For example, the Jones family that lives at 1 Elm Street in Fort Lee will receive 4 badges, each with the #5 printed on them. The adult resident is responsible and will be held accountable for anyone who uses a badge that is numbered #5. The number of family members using the pool area may not exceed the number of badges. An adult resident from that household must be present to watch his or her child/children. Badges are not to be transferred from one person to another or from one family to another. Violation of this rule will result in a suspension of privileges. Guest badges will not be available.
WADING POOL / SPRAY PARK ATTENDANTS
There will be attendants assigned to each pool to ensure the rules of conduct and membership are followed. Attendants are not lifeguards! Therefore, every child in the pool/spray park must be properly chaperoned by an adult member. The attendants will be glad to assist you in any way they can in accordance with the state’s and the town’s guidelines. (All attendants are trained in Covid-19 Awareness protocol.)
