In an effort to provide some much needed relief during these hot summer days while, at the same time, abiding by the rules set forth by the CDC and the state and local health departments in an effort to contain the COVID-19 virus, the Borough of Fort Lee is opening its three wading pools and spray park in a way that will be new to all of us. We ask for your cooperation and patience in this effort.
To expedite the in-person registration to obtain badges in order to use the pools and spray park, we ask that you do the following:
Read the rules carefully as they have changed from previous years.
Read the liability waiver for your household before completing it. Initial the bottom of each page as well as signing the document.
Complete the pool registration form.
Please bring these completed forms (links below) along with your photo ID and with proof of residency to the in-person registration (See Pool Rules). You will not be permitted to register without a mask!

Memberships for Fort Lee Wading Pools / Spray Park are available to Fort Lee Residents Only. Upon registration, an adult resident will be assigned 4 badges with the same number on them. For example, the Jones family that lives at 1 Elm Street in Fort Lee will receive 4 badges, each with the #5 printed on them. The adult resident is responsible and will be held accountable for anyone who uses a badge that is numbered #5. The number of family members using the pool area may not exceed the number of badges. An adult resident from that household must be present to watch his or her child/children. Badges are not to be transferred from one person to another or from one family to another. Violation of this rule will result in a suspension of privileges. Guest badges will not be available.
WADING POOL / SPRAY PARK ATTENDANTS
There will be attendants assigned to each pool to ensure the rules of conduct and membership are followed. Attendants are not lifeguards! Therefore, every child in the pool/spray park must be properly chaperoned by an adult member. The attendants will be glad to assist you in any way they can in accordance with the state’s and the town’s guidelines. (All attendants are trained in Covid-19 Awareness protocol.)
