2020 Daily Admission Card (DAC) Information


Due to State Dept. of Health (DOH) capacity restrictions and modifications to the daily schedule, CP Pool will NOT be offering memberships as in past years.  Visitors to CP Pool will ‘pay as you go’, as capacity restrictions mean that entry to CP Pool will not be guaranteed from one block of time to the next. We are scheduling CP Pool in two-week windows for summer 2020 and the Window # 1 (July 13-26) schedule with various blocks of time can be viewed at: https://s3.amazonaws.com/my.llfiles.com/00014353/2020-Pool-Doc-Version-7-13.pdf

Per DOH, all visitors must be accurately logged into our system in case there is a need in the future to do contact tracing. Because of this new requirement, we are instituting the Daily Admission Card (DAC)which must be scanned each time you enter the facility, at the same time that daily admission fees are paid. 

Eligibility for a DAC: Available to all Princeton residents and all 2019 pool members. We will not be offering a DAC to any nonresidents that were not 2019 CP Pool members.

DAC registration begins on 7/1/20 at 12 pm and is free of charge to all eligible patrons.


To register in person: Visit the PRD office beginning on July 6, 2020. We highly encourage online registration to minimize crowding at the Princeton Rec. offices.  

Financial Assistance (FA): If you received financial assistance in 2019, you will soon receive information about the 2020 FA program in the mail.
