Do not miss out on even a day at the “City’s Hottest Place to Cool Off.”  This is only the first of many heat waves to hit New Jersey. Don’t be left outside looking in. Memberships are available for Summit residents. If you haven’t been to the Summit Family Aquatic Center in years, you will be delighted at the many upgrades to the facility. We are more than just a swimming pool. The award-winning Summit Family Aquatic Center has so much to offer our residents and their guests.
