BERKELEY HEIGHTS, NJ - Place the long tough winter behind us -- picture the hot blazing sun of July, bathing suits, foam swim noodles, and a dive into the cool blue waters of the Berkeley Heights Community Pool (BHCP). 

The BHCP is celebrating their 50th Anniversary! Residents of Berkeley Heights and pool members agree that the BHCP is the place for kids and adults to enjoy their summer months.

The BHCP Early Bird Registration rates are effective until April 15. Registration is now through the Community Pass link.

The BHCP offers an Olympic size pool featuring two diving boards and two slides and a separate baby pool area.  There is also a full service snack bar, basketball and tennis courts, tether ball, horseshoes and shuffleboard courts as well as daily activities for all ages. 

“I spent my childhood summers  on Long Island at our local pool -- taking lessons, learning to swim, competing on the swim team and eventually becoming a lifeguard. We wanted the same experience for our son and BHCP was the perfect fit -- fun in the sun, swim lessons and he too, became a lifeguard at the pool!” said Patricia Parmett.

Amy DiNunzio agreed, “I have such fond memories of summers growing up at my community pool that I wanted my kids to have the same experiences and memories at BHCP.”

DiNunzio along with Parmett and the other Board of Trustees and management of the BHCP work hard to make the pool an affordable, safe, fun place for the entire community to enjoy.

“Our first priorities are safety, cleanliness of the pool, and providing an environment where families can relax and enjoy the summer," said DiNunzio.

The pool continually evolves, the Trustees and management works with the families to maximize fun in a safe environment.

Swim lessons and clinics are available with a new scheduling system making the process much easier for all, said DiNunzio.

The competitive swim team welcomes all levels.  “The Guinee sisters have been instrumental in improving our swim team and we are so appreciative of their dedication,” said DiNunzio.  

Swim team membership has increased by almost 75% under the stand-out coaching of Eileen Guinee and her sister Brittany. BHCP is excited to have assistant coaches Nick Rubino and Meghan Guinee returning for the season.

“The swim team is a fantastic way to improve your child’s swimming ability in a team-oriented, fun environment. Some of our swimmers continue competing on year-round teams, and many enjoy swimming just on the summer team,” said DiNunzio.

The pool plans to hold movie nights, adult socials and special 50th Anniversary celebrations this summer.

Mark your calendars for the 50th Anniversary kick-off celebration on June 14 and a family BBQ planned for July 19.  The BBQ will feature a professional DJ, dunk tank, catered food and much more.

Erika Naftalis returns as Pool Manager, who was fantastic, said DiNunzio.   Naftalis was instrumental in the painting of the outdoor structure last summer. A survey was given to the members asking to prioritize the list of capital improvements.  The BHCP is currently working to make some of the items happen.
