With COVID hopefully moving into our past we are now very pleased to announce that we are opening the North Orange Park Aquatic Center this year. There are many changes in store. Some due to COVID and others that were anticipated to start in 2020.
We will be opening the pool on May 21, 2021
Please read below and follow the directions. We hope to see you at the pool this year!
Season Pool Passes – Residents Only
You may start purchasing your pool pass on Wednesday April 28, 2021. You will go to our website orangetwp.org and go to the Aquatic Center Link on our home page.
It will take you to a link to become what is called a “member”. This is a program we are using called Recdesk. When you are checked for residency you will get an approval notice via email. When you receive your approval notice you can then proceed to purchase your season pool pass. If you would like to get ahead of the game, you can become a member on RecDesk now and on the season pool pass purchasing start date all you need do is purchase your season pool pass.
We have finally gotten rid of those old pool passes and are going with FOBs! Each person on your season pool pass will get their own FOB. We have set 3 dates that you can get your FOBs before opening date of the pool. You can only obtain them at the North Orange Park Aquatic Center, 7560 Gooding Blvd. Those dates and times are listed below:
Sunday, May 2, from 11:00 a.m. to 5:00 p.m.
Wednesday, May 5, from 1:00 p.m. to 7:00 p.m.
Saturday, May 8, from 2:00 p.m. to 8:00 p.m.
Another day may be added if it is determined it is needed. If you cannot make it those times, you will be able to get the FOBs the first time you attend the pool.
DAILY POOL PASSES - RESIDENTS ONLY
Orange Township residents may purchase a daily pool pass only on the day they would like to attend and only at the North Orange Aquatic Center.
Season Pool Pass Holders, may purchase numerous daily pool (guest) passes via RecDesk. Keep in mind if the season pool pass holder purchases less than $100 there will be a minimum $2.00 credit card fee imposed, not by Orange Township but the card processing company.
NO REFUNDS. The only refund that will be considered are due to a pool incident. You will be given a written refund pass. It will be your responsibility to check to make sure there is space available on the date in which you want to use your refund pass. You can do this by calling North Orange Park Aquatic Center at 740.657.8881 the day you decide to use your pass.
RESERVING BLOCKS OF TIME
Due to COVID Guidelines you will only be able to reserve blocks of time to swim due to COVID cleaning guidelines and capacity limitations.
Those blocks of time are:
11:00 a.m. to 2:00 p.m.
2:30 p.m. to 5:30 p.m.
6:00 p.m. to 8:30 p.m.
You will again go into RecDesk through our website to reserve your block of time.
We ask that you only reserve one block a time per day to give all residents a chance to use the aquatic center.
