To mark the summer solstice of 2019 I have decide to spend my frugal Friday at the community pool in my city. Today is not only the first day of summer it is also the longest day of the year.
Fire Fighter Memorial
I live in Union City, NJ. It is a very diverse community full of culture just two miles away from New York City. We have a couple of indoor pools accessible all year round and one glorious outdoor pool open just a few months a year.
The park features a kiddie pool, Olympic sized swimming pool and breathtaking views of NYC. In the peak of summer when the kids are out of school it gets packed and there is a wait. I enjoy the off peak adult swim hours. The admission is FREE to all Hudson County residents.
