Public Pools in Hudson County to Enjoy This Summer

Written by:

If you ask Hoboken residents what they’d like to see come to town, almost everyone has the same answer: A POOL. While there are actually several pools around Hoboken, most are located in private apartment buildings that are not open to the public {a true bummer if you don’t live there OR don’t have a friend there}. For us pool-less folks, the struggle can sometimes be real in the summer months, but with some research, we might just have a solution. Read on for a list of pools that are open to the public for Hudson County residents this summer:

Sky Club Fitness and Spas

Located at 125 Marshall Street, The Sky Club Fitness Center has a pool which members can use {included in their all-inclusive $89/month membership} or it’s $35 per adult per day {$10 per day for a child}. Not horrible, but definitely not super cheap. An option, nonetheless.

Stevens Aquatics: Adult + Recreational Swims

If you work or go to school at Stevens, you can utilize the facility for free — but the public can purchase a monthly membership as well. Membership options and pricing can be found here.

You {or Your Friend’s} Apartment

There are many apartment buildings in town that have swimming pools — The Sovereign, Harlow, The South Independence Court, Avalon, and more. Many will allow a few guests to enjoy the pool as well, as long as the resident of the building is present {but, each building has different rules, so always make sure to check before your pool day}.

Jersey City

While there are many pools in Jersey City, all of them are open to residents only {good news for our JC readers!}. Guests of residents may visit {with the JC resident present only}, so a word of advice — keep your JC friends close 😉

Pavonia/Marion Municipal Pool {914 Pavonia Avenue, Jersey City}

The Pavonia/Marion Municipal Pool has two pools, a main one that is from 3.5 feet to 5.4 feet and a kiddie pool that goes from 0 feet to 3 feet.

Pershing Field Pool {201 Central Avenue}

The Pershing Field Pool is indoors and is open all year-round — score. This is a great option for a cloudy or rainy day in the summer when most outdoor pools would be closed.

Other Pools in the Area

Union City Pools

To use any of Union City’s pools, you must have a valid Hudson County ID {yay!} — there are pools located at 507 West Street, 219 47th Street, 906 Palisade Avenue, and 3881 Park Avenue.

Secaucus Swim Center

The only way to get into the Secaucus pool is if you know a resident. While rules have changed several times over the years and Hoboken residents were once allowed in, that is no longer the case. So, just like our Jersey City friends — definitely keep in touch with those Secaucus friends 😉

Water Activities on the Hudson River

While the Hudson River isn’t a pool {and we totes don’t recommend swimming in it} there are plenty of activities on the water that can keep you cool on a hot day. From jet skiing to kayaking, to paddle boarding, this is the perfect option for those who are a bit on the adventurous side and wouldn’t want to lay at a pool all day.
