NEW  DISCOUNTED TWILIGHT FEES BEGINNING AT 4:30 pm--POOL OPENS ON MONDAY

The Anthony Veteran Town Pool, off of Heatherdell Road, will open Memorial Day from 10am to 5:45pm. The pool will be open only during weekends until the weekend of June 14 & 15 and then every day until Labor Day. This year we will be starting a “twilight fee” beginning each day at 4:30pm. You can register for the pool 7 days a week at Veteran Park from 10am to 4pm throughout the summer. Below is a summary of the pool fees. More information can be found on our website www.greenburghny.com/parks.

 

If you are new to the town and have small children - your kids will love our interactive kiddy pool--with great spray features.

Enjoy the summer.

If you reside in the villages you can only use the Veteran town pool if you attend as a guest of a resident of unincorporated Greenburgh. In the 1970s, after the pool was acquired by the town, the New York State Legislature approved a law that only applies to Greenburgh restricting the pool to residents of unincorporated Greenburgh. The law is known as the Finneran law.  In recent years Hastings and Dobbs Ferry (which have their own pools) have offered village residents a limited number of permits to use their pool.

 

There are other options for village residents.  The county has some pools and beaches open to anyone who resides in the county. The following may be of interest to you.
