When I was a kid, I loved visiting my best friend in Rosendale. Sure it was fun to play cops and robbers and walk down to Stewarts to eat a hand-packed pint, but there was an even bigger attraction: the Rosendale pool.

Public Pools in Ulster County NY

I loved the Rosendale pool. There were waterslides for the big kids, a kiddie pool for the little ones, and an epic snack bar. The good news for Ulster County residents is that it's opening for the season. If the town made famous by cement and train trestles is too far of a drive for you, don't worry. Here's a list of some of the best public pools opening for the summer in Ulster County, NY.

Moriello Pool in New Paltz, NY

The Moriello pool is open weekends through June 20th, when it will also transition to a seven-day schedule. Their hours vary slightly: 12-7pm on weekends, 12-7:30pm every day June 25th-August 14th, and then back to 12-7pm from August 15th-September 5th. Family season passes are available for purchase, along with single-person season passes and day passes all for sale in-person at the pool. The small print: you MUST be a New Paltz resident to swim with a daily pass.

Ulster County Pool Complex in New Paltz, NY

Lucky for non-New Paltz residents who live nearby, there's another option available. Unlike the Moriello pool, the Ulster County Pool Complex only requires swimmers to be residents of Ulster County, not New Paltz for a discount, and also allows non-residents entry for both day use and season pass purchasing.
