The Verona Pool will open full-time on Wednesday, July 1 and will remain open through Labor Day, September 7.

Memberships are available to Verona residents only and registration for them opened this morning through the Community Pass system. The town is not holding in-person registration because of COVID-19. All memberships will include three single-day guest passes.

Pool tags can be picked up outside the Verona Community Center Tuesday to Thursday, June 23 to 25 from 5:30 p.m. to 7:30 p.m. Tags can also be picked up at the Membership Tent located outside the front gate of the pool from 10 a.m. to 1 p.m. from July 1 through July 5. Valid identification with proof of a Verona address is required to pick up pool membership tags.

If you are a returning member, your membership tags from previous seasons will be automatically reactivated upon registration. The town will also use the same membership photos from last season. If you lost your tag, the fee for a replacement is $10.

If you are a new Verona resident, or a first-time pool members, you will need membership tags. To get them, you need to email individual headshot photographs of each family member to [email protected].

The Town Council recently voted to lower pool membership fees this season. A family membership is now $355, while Family with a babysitter drops to $435. The Couples badge will be $330, Parent/Child will be $310 and an individual membership will be $235. The Twilight membership for people who can’t use the pool during the day is $135 and a Senior Citizen badge is $125.

The pool will be open Monday to Friday from 11 a.m. to 8 p.m. On Saturday and Sunday, the pool will open at 10 a.m. for those 18 and older, and at 11 a.m. for everyone else, and remain open until 8 p.m. There will be Tuesday Family Nights from 4 to 8 p.m. that will be free for Verona residents with valid identification.

The pool will have several new rules to follow the social distancing guidelines imposed by COVID-19. Members, guests and employees (except lifeguards on post) over the age of two must wear a face covering over their nose and mouth when entering and exiting the pool grounds and when using the restroom. Face coverings must not be worn when in the water.

Only single-occupancy showers will be available in the locker rooms and restroom access will only be from the pool deck entrance. Occupancy will be limited with a staff member controlling access.

There will be no snack bar by there will be two vending machines serving soft drinks. Members can order food delivery to the pool, but no delivery drivers will be allowed inside the pool gate.
