SOUTH ORANGE, NJ - The South Orange Community Pool, which the Recreation Department had previously stated would not be open Memorial Day weekend but would have a delayed opening on June 2, provided an additional update on Thursday that the "new date anticipated for opening the South Orange Community Pool is Saturday, June 9th."

According to the Recreation Department, "weather issues, both the early spring snow and the ongoing spring rain, have caused delays in the construction project underway to replace the main pool filter system."
