Public Pools in Hudson County to Enjoy This Summer

Staying Cool

If you ask Hoboken residents what they’d like to see come to town, almost everyone has the same answer – a pool. While there are actually several pools throughout Hoboken, most are located in private apartment buildings that are not open to the publicFor us pool-less folks, the struggle can sometimes be real in the summer months, but with some research, we might just have a solution. Read on for a list of pools that are open to the public for Hudson County residents.

Please note: these spots open at various times throughout the season, so before arriving with sunscreen + towel in hand, be sure to confirm with the pool of your choice that they are operating that day.

Secaucus Swim Center

The only way to get into the Secaucus pool is if you know a resident. While rules have changed several times over the years and Hoboken residents were once allowed in, that is no longer the case. So, just like our Jersey City friends, keep in touch with those Secaucus friends!

Weehawken Pool | Hudson River Waterfront

The Weehawken Pool is a spectacular waterfront pool overlooking the NYC skyline. It officially opened on Memorial Day Weekend of 2022.  There’s a main swimming pool, a lap pool, splash pads, a water slide, and more. As of 2023, it’s open to all New Jersey residents. See the 2023 schedule here.

Although not technically a public pool, this Hoboken fitness center does have a pool for members to enjoy, and a pool-only membership option, too. If you’re on the fence about pursuing a membership, there’s a free guest pass for locals to claim — and the summer swim hours can be found here.

Water Activities on the Hudson River

While the Hudson River isn’t a pool, there are plenty of activities on the water that can keep you cool on a hot day. From jet skiing to kayaking, to paddle boarding, this is the perfect option for those who are a bit on the adventurous side and wouldn’t want to lay at a pool all day.
