Pool, rink, new parks coming to waterfront

f96_01weeexpansion21_1The Township of Weehawken approved last month a 3.5-acre expansion of its waterfront recreational area, which by summer 2019 is set to include new pools.

According to officials, the entire project will be completed by the end of 2019. It will include a six-lane lap pool, a recreational pool, infant pool, splash park, and an 11,200-square-foot ice-skating rink/multi-purpose pavilion.

It will be situated next to a pre-existing 10-acre waterfront park, and will be connected to a two-acre land plot to be used for passive and active recreation, such as music concerts and infant parks.

The township hopes to open the pools by summer 2019, and the entire expansion by the end of the year. The six-lane and recreational pools will be handicap accessible.

The lane pool will include bleachers on one end for viewing, and the recreational pool will include a slide and whirlpool area. FULL STORY AT HUDSONREPORTER.COM
