2021 POOL MEMBERSHIPS
WALK-IN REGISTRATION IS NOT AVAILABLE. You cannot purchase a pool membership at the pools. You may purchase memberships online or via mail or drop box.
While memberships are valid for both pools, please indicate the pool you will visit more often as your main pool on the
application. This helps us determine how many lifeguards we need at each
location, as well as where we will send your tag for pickup.
NEW APPLICANTS (or residents who have not had a membership in the last five years) must provide:
- A driver’s license, deed, mortgage, or lease to prove residency.
- Birth certificates required for all children.
IMPORTANT: If you are new or adding a member and plan to mail your form you will need to include
the above documentation
for verification. For this sensitive information, and for faster processing of your application, consider using our drop box at
8230 Old York Road, Elkins Park, PA 19027. The drop box is locked and secure under camera surveillance, located at our front door. Please seal the envelope and write Parks and Recreation on it. You
may also email the documents if you prefer. All
sensitive information will be shredded upon verification - we do not
keep paper or electronic copies. Do not mail originals or leave them in
the drop box.
If you need assistance, please call 215-887-6200 ext. 227 or email [email protected].
Online Registration Registration has closed for 2021.
- Click on the link above to go to our online registration portal. (https://cheltenhamtownship.recdesk.com)
- When you create the account you will receive an email acknowledging
the account was created; however, new accounts will still
need to be verified. *If you have not received an email asking you to verify, please reach out to verify. You may visit us in person to register on Tuesdays, Wednesdays and Thursdays from 9:00 a.m. to 11:30 a.m. and 1:00 p.m. to 3:00 p.m.*
- We verify that you are a resident in Cheltenham Township, and check custody/guardianship to ensure you are the parent or guardian
of the children on your account, as the parent/guardian is needed for consent forms and waivers for children.
- The old format used paper forms to record verification. We
can only go back five years. If you have not registered in the last
five years and we cannot locate you on file, you will be asked to
provide the documentation listed above in red.
- We ask to see a driver's license each year to verify you have not moved.
Printable Pool Membership Applications Registration has closed for 2021.
You may print the forms and return them both to us with a check or money order made payable to "Cheltenham Township". Applications, COVID-19 Waivers, and payments should be dropped off in our drop box, or mailed to:
Parks and Recreation
8230 Old York Road
Elkins Park, PA 19027
NOTE: If you do not return the signed COVID-19 waiver, your
application will not be processed and you will not receive pool tags. The waiver specifies, 'parent or guardian'. If you are purchasing the membership
for yourself, sign on the program participant line. The
waiver needs to be completed regardless if you are
registering a for a family or one person.
- Applications mailed or left in the drop box will have a
receipt sent through the mail. If you mailed or dropped off your
application, please allow us a few days to assign the tags and get the
tags to the pool. This may take longer during the week of August 9th while I am on vacation.
Membership cards or tags are never mailed to residents. You may pick these up the first time you visit the pool. You will be required to show your driver's license.
Staff are working as quickly as possible to process the current
volume of memberships purchased and tags assigned. If you registered
online, please print your receipt and use
that to gain entrance to the pool until your tags are ready for
pick up. Check with the pool to see if your tags are available.
Glenside Pool: 215-885-1717
Conklin Pool: 215-663-8978
Seasonal members may visit the pool as much as they want
during the season. A Daily membership requires you to pay a registration
fee and then pay each visit to the pool. You may take a guest, and pay
the guest fee regardless which membership type you have.
SEASONAL FAMILY MEMBERSHIP: $250
Per our policy, a family is considered a person and their spouse or
significant other, and their children up to the age of 23 (with valid
school I.D.) A family membership is for a family, not a
household. If more than one family resides in the same house, they are
both eligible for their own separate family memberships, but cannot
be combined onto one family membership.
SEASONAL YOUTH MEMBERSHIP (up to age 23 with valid school ID): $80
SEASONAL ADULT MEMBERSHIP: $130.
SEASONAL SENIOR MEMBERSHIP (Ages 62+): $50
DAILY TAG: $35 Registration fee; $7/day for adults, $6/day for youth (ages 3-17)
Each member that has paid the
$35 registration fee will pay a lower fee than a guest would pay
to use the pool. Tags are not transferable. The pools accept CASH ONLY, no checks or
Adults - $12 weekday/$15 weekend;
Youth (3-17) - $10 weekday/$12 weekend
One guest per tag holding member. Check with your pool manager to see if
restrictions ease enough to allow a party. The pools are not rented out
for private parties. CASH ONLY, no checks
or credit/debit cards.
