But maybe the kids will be heading to the Bernards Township pool, even if it's still a little cold to jump in. The town pool at Pleasant Valley Park opens for the season this Saturday at 11 a.m., and will be open from 11 a.m. to 8 p.m. on Saturday, Sunday and Monday, according to the schedule posted on the Bernards Township website.
