[07/07/20]   A few notes before we open tomorrow. We are all very excited to open the pool and see the community! The lifeguards have been working hard to get recertified and trained on COVID specific modifications we can make to keep everyone safe & healthy if CPR/First aid is needed. We owe a big thank you to the Fire Dept. & Board of Health for helping us with training and to the DPW for working quickly and efficiently allowing us to open sooner than expected.
Please read the guidelines below before arriving at Island Grove. They are all subject to change based on state and local protocol. An email notification will be sent out if anything changes throughout the season. Feel free to reach out to the office or any staff member at Island Grove with any questions or concerns. Thank you all for your patience, with everyone’s help to follow the rules we are confident this will be a great season!

- You must have a membership to swim for this year. Residents and non-residents can purchase memberships online, in the office or at the snack shack.

- You can register online for a time slot (only one person needs to register for your group). Walk-ins are allowed but if you do not have a reservation, we will not be able to guarantee a space at the pool. To check availability, you can call the Island Grove phone at 339-205-5878 between 9 am – 5 pm.

- Please use the entrance by the snack shack when you first come down. This will help us keep an accurate count and make sure everyone is checked in.

- We ask that you wear a mask anytime you are not swimming or within your “area” on the beach. Masks must be worn when using the restrooms and coming up to the snack shack.

- Please socially distance. We ask you remain 6 ft apart while in line and from those on the beach/in the water.

- Groups should be seated 12 ft from each other on the beach.

- Only one person/family in the bathroom at one time.

- Do not congregate on the docks. They should only be used to enter the water and walking.

- Hand sanitizer will be stationed through the beach and there is access to soap and water. Please wash or sanitize:
• After sneezing or coughing
• Touching your face
• Before and after eating
• Touching common surfaces
• Using the bathroom

- Please be respectful to the staff. They are doing their best to keep you and the community safe. You will be asked to leave if you are being argumentative or rude.

- Please respect others on the beach and in the water. We understand that it can be difficult to keep little ones from playing together, especially after being apart for so long, but we ask that you are mindful others in close proximity and remember that COVID- 19 is still a serious health risk.

- Keep in mind that by coming to Island Grove you are accepting the risks associated. If you have purchased a membership and are no longer comfortable coming, please call the office and a full refund will be provided.

After much planning and discussion, we are excited to announce that the Island Grove pool will be open July 8th to August 12th! We are all happy to be able to provide a normal summer activity for Abington but are still asking for everyone’s patience with new protocol, guidelines, and rules needed to keep our staff and the community safe. Please keep in mind that everything is subject to change based on current state and local guidelines. If you have any questions feel free to reach out to the office at 781-982-2125 or email [email protected]. The complete list of guidelines and protocol will be posted on the rec website under Island Grove Membership.

- For this season we will not be selling day passes. Memberships are at a discounted rate to account for the shortened season. To register for a membership visit www.abingtonrec.com.

- Abington residents will get priority when buying memberships. Non-residents can register at any time, but your membership will be waitlisted until July 1st and we are not able to guarantee a spot until that point. Non-residents will not be asked to pay for their membership until they are moved from the waitlist.

- To keep up with state regulations, each household must be seated 12 ft from each on the beach.

- In the water you will be asked to keep your distance from other families.

- Because of the limited spacing, families will need to register for a time slot. Reservation can be made at www.abingtonrec.com  Register  Programs  Island Grove Pool. Reservations for the summer will be available beginning Monday. We will offer three different times slots every day. Slot 1: 9 am – 12 pm, Slot 2: 12 pm – 3 pm, & Slot 3: 3 pm - 5 pm. You may register for more than one time slot per day, but we ask that you not register for more time than your family will use.

- As long as you have a membership, you may “walk-in” or call the day of, but we can only guarantee spots to those who have made a reservation.

Below is an update on our summer programs. Please contact the office with any questions or concerns at 781-982-2125.

www.abingtonrec.ci

Registration is now open for all summer programs! A couple of things to note for this year:
- We will be taking programs week by week. We understand there are many unknowns at the moment but we still need to plan for the best and will make any calls as advised by the state.
- If we do need to cancel any programs, you will receive a full refund, including deposits. However, to make things a little easier on families, we will not be requiring the normal $75 deposit. It will still be due in the overall cost but it is not required at the time of registration.
- We will be extending the early registration discounts to June 15th to give everyone some additional time to register.

Visit abingtonrec.com to register! If you have any other questions or concerns please reach out to the office at 781-982-2125 or email [email protected].

We hope everyone is staying safe and healthy!

This is an update to the park, playground and field closures. Note that walking paths and trails are still open but please be mindful of social distancing even in outdoor settings. If you have any questions about closures feel free to reach out to the DPW at 781-982-2122 or the Board of Health. Thank you for your patience and cooperation!

[03/16/20]   After discussion with the Board of Health, surrounding towns, and the department staff we have determined it would be the safest decision to close all playgrounds until school is back in session.
Additionally, there will be a delay in releasing summer camp information as we wait for other dates and information to be solidified. We understand many people are waiting for these dates to plan summer activities so we will be working to get these out as soon a possible.

Please call with any questions: 781-982-2125.

We are now taking applications for lifeguard positions at Island Grove! Applicants must be at least 15 years old and be lifeguard and waterfront certified by the beginning of summer. Please call or email the office with any questions.
