KINGSTON, NY – Mayor Steven T. Noble and the Parks and Recreation Department are pleased to announce that Kingston Point Beach will officially open on Friday, June 17, 2022. The beach will be open with lifeguards on duty five days a week, Wednesday through Sunday, from 10:00am-4:45pm.
The Andretta Pool and splash pad will be open to the public starting on Saturday, June 25, 2022. The pool will be open Wednesdays through Sundays (times vary each day, see attached schedule). Mondays and Tuesdays are closed for summer camp swim days. As in the past two summers, there will be no entry fee for the pool.
Hours for both the beach and pool are subject to change, based on staffing and weather. Check the Kingston Parks and Recreation Facebook page for updates.
“We are so excited to open the beach and pool to our residents this summer,” said Mayor Noble. “I want to thank our Parks and Recreation Director Lynsey Timbrouck for her hard work in making sure we have plenty of lifeguards to keep the beach and pool open and fully operational throughout the season. We look forward to a great summer of swimming, and are happy to provide both amenities free of charge.”
Parks and Recreation Director Lynsey Timbrouck said, “Parks and Recreation is pleased to be able to open the pool and beach for our community, especially at time when lifeguards are difficult to come by. I’m grateful for our dedicated staff and the time being put in to train and prepare for the season ahead. We wish everyone a safe and fun summer!”
As part of the Downtown Revitalization Initiative Grant, the City of Kingston is investing approximately $1.8 million in Andretta Pool Improvements. The City has completed Phase 1, which included a new roof and masonry repairs at the pool house; pool lining repairs and installation of a new pump and filter; and the installation of a new splash pad. Phase 2 will begin with renovation of the pool house interior when the 2022 swim season closes. More info at https://engagekingston.com/dietz-stadium-andretta-pool-improvements.
