Bee Meadow Pool Season 2020 Update Due to COVID-19

Bee Meadow Pool

HANOVER TOWNSHIP — Here is some important information concerning the Bee Meadow Pool 2020 Summer Season.

With the extension of Governor Murphy’s Executive Order regarding COVID-19 restrictions to June 7, 2020, The Bee Meadow pool will not open on the advertised date of Friday, May 22, 2020.

The target date for opening the Bee Meadow Pool is on or about Wednesday, July 1, 2020. The DPW and pool crews have begun work to get the facility in proper working condition. The new slide has been installed and is waiting for summer swimmers.

However, our ability to successfully open the Bee Meadow Pool for 2020 depends on a number of factors including the ability to meet social distancing requirements and the ability to sanitize and disinfect the pool facility to CDC and Department of Health standards.

Most importantly, the July 1 opening depends on the number of members registered. Since the pool is, and always must be self-sustaining, a large part of our decision to open this summer will be based on how many registration cards we receive by Monday, June 15, 2020.

The blue cards are available in the main vestibule of the Municipal Building. After you complete the blue card you can return them to the Municipal Building or mail them to: Hanover Township Recreation Department, 15 North Jefferson Road, Whippany, N.J. 07981.

Do not pay! Due to the new opening date the fee structure will be revised and you will be billed the new amount.

If you have already registered for the pool…THANK YOU! Once the new fee schedule is released, you will receive a refund/credit for the difference.

During this unusual time, your patience is appreciated and understanding as they work their way back to some kind of normalcy.

If you have any questions, please contact: or call The Hanover Township Recreation Department: (973) 428-2463.
