Emmaus Pool is Ready for Labor Day Weekend

Baby pool remains closed until next year due to damage from Hurricane Irene, but everything else is cleaned up and prepped for the holiday.

It will be business as usual at the Emmaus Borough Pool for the three-day holiday weekend – with one exception – the baby pool is closed for the season due to damage caused by Hurricane Irene. 

There was some post-Irene cleanup that had to be done to get the main pool ready for Labor Day weekend, according to Emmaus Borough Manager Craig Neely. But, he says, that’s all been taken care of and residents will still be able to enjoy the pool during the final weekend of summer. 

The Emmaus Pool will be open Saturday, Sept. 3 through Monday, Sept. 5, from noon to 8 p.m. Day passes for adults 18 and over can be purchased at a cost of $7 per day for residents and $8 per day for non-residents. Passes for children ages 6-17 cost $6 for residents and $7 for non-residents.

The Emmaus Pool closes for the season after Labor Day.

Borough Manager Craig Neely reports that the Emmaus Pool will not be open this weekend. An electrical starter to one of the pumps that runs the main pool failed last night and the replacement part can no be delivered until after Labor Day Weekend. As a result, the pool is closed for the season.

Yes, Jennifer is correct. The Borough of Emmaus apologizes for any inconvenience caused by the closing of the pool. Neverhteless, it is unavoidable, as the system component that failed is a special order part that we could not obtain before the weekend. We wish everyone a happy and safe holiday weekend. Craig Neely Emmaus Borough Manager
