Hello Chester Area Pool Members,

We are pleased to announce that the Chester Area Pool (CAP) will be opening on Memorial Day Weekend! There were many obstacles and challenges we all had to overcome last season due to the global pandemic.  We will continue to comply  with the Governor’s orders to keep our staff and customers safe.  We are hopeful this season will run smoothly and that we can return to normal as much as possible. 


Registration is open to all Chester residents and non-residents on a first come/first served basis. If full membership capacity is reached, a wait-list will be established.

The CAP opens on Memorial Day weekend (for weekends only). The pool will be open daily from 11:00am – 7:45pm (grounds close at 8:00pm) once the Chester Schools are closed for summer vacation – on or about June 16, 2021.
