The Bee Meadow Pool, owned by the Township of Hanover and operated by the Board of Recreation Commissioners, opened in 1964. It was built and is run entirely on funds generated from membership fees and other operating revenues. The pool is located on the 89 acre Bee Meadow Park site.
The Main Swimming Pool contains a diving board, two slides, and a shallow area which gives the pool its Z-shaped configuration. The entire pool is surrounded by a concrete deck, which in turn is surrounded by lawn and professional landscaping. A small tot pool is also located on the grounds. The bathhouse provides hot showers and restrooms. A snack bar is also available to our members and their guests. Our newly added Recreation Area includes a half-court basketball court, tetherball court, and two 4-square courts. The pool's professional staff is headed by a veteran manager and includes well trained and certified lifeguards.
Bee Meadow Pool will be open on Friday, May 24, 2019, for our Family Swim Night Season Kickoff and Noodle Night from 5:00 pm - 8:00 pm, as well as Saturday, Sunday, and Monday of Memorial Day Weekend from 11:30 am - 7:30 pm. We will follow weekend-only (Saturday/Sunday) hours in June until the Hanover Township schools are out for the year. The facility will open daily beginning Tuesday, June 25, 2019 (or the day after the Hanover Township Schools close for the year) until Labor Day on Monday, September 2, 2019.
