Clarkstown Cuts Swimming Registration Rates for Summer 2008


Clarkstown Supervisor Alex Gromack and the Parks Board and Recreation Commission have announced they are significantly cutting swimming registration rates for the summer of 2008.  In response to the Parks and Recreation Community forums held throughout the town in 2007 Clarkstown officials have restructured the 2008 swimming registration fees. 


Supervisor Alex Gromack said, "After a year of conducting community forums on recreation, we have listened to our residents and restructured the swimming registration rates.  We are trying to accommodate the needs of a diverse population and make our recreation activities more affordable and user friendly."


This summer a family of five (two parents and three children) will be paying $380.00 for the season as compared with last years rate of $460.  A family of five will pay $240 for the weeknight/weekend rate this summer compared with last years rate of $395.  In 2007, an individual adult paid $265 for the season and this year an individual costs $100.  One adult and one child paid $460 for the season last year and this year will pay $160.  Daily rates have also been cut.  Residents are encouraged to register before the May 31st deadline as rates do increase after that.              


Supervisor Gromack said, "We realize that not all families or individuals can go to the pool during the weekdays, so to accommodate Clarkstown working residents we have varied our weeknight/weekend rates to be more moderately priced."   


Clarkstown has also expanded hours opening Germonds Pool and Lake Nanuet at 11am, which is an hour earlier.  Germonds Pool will remain open until 8:45PM, Congers Pool and Lake Nanuet until 6:45pm.  In addition, for every individual seasonal pass purchased, a resident will receive two free daily guest passes for the pool as well as one free pass to a round of mini golf at Germonds. 


"We hope that the reduction of fees will invite more residents to sign up.  We want more residents to be able to use our three beautiful pool facilities," concluded Supervisor Gromack.
