Like many other towns and pool facilities across our region, the Town of Clarkstown is facing a lifeguard shortage this year. As residents were eager to flock to our 3 beautiful pools in town earlier this spring and summer, we worked very hard to recruit and retain lifeguards for all three of our pool facilities.
We must adhere to strict state safety requirements in regards to lifeguards including: age requirements, CPR and first aid training, swim tests, the number of guards on duty, how long a guard can be on duty and other rules and regulations.
We were pleased to be able to safely open our 3 pool facilities this summer and keep them operating at full capacity thus far.
Unfortunately, effective Saturday, August 14th, Congers Pool will be closed for the season due to the lifeguard shortage in our area.
We ask residents to please continue to use our other two top rated pool facilities, Germonds Pool in West Nyack and Lake Nanuet in Nanuet.With many lifeguards/students returning to college, the Town of Clarkstown is still seeking lifeguards for the rest of the summer.
If interested please call 845-639-6200.
