The last time we went to Springs Brook Park was two years ago. Last year they closed in early/middle August and we missed the chance to go. We made sure to go this year:
SPRINGS BROOK PARK is a man-made, filtered, swimming facility. The park is set back in a beautiful wooded setting. It is located at 181 Springs Road, just north of the four way intersection at Springs Road, Page Road and Pine Hill Road. SBP is staffed by lifeguards/swim instructors who are certified in water safety,lifeguard training, first aid and professional rescuer CPR.
Turns out there are some changes for this year. For 2015 the park is not open on weekends. There is now minigolf and a few other extra things to do.
Hours: Monday-Friday: 10:30-7:30 — Saturday & Sunday: CLOSED (Park will not be open on weekends summer 2015.)
Cost: $7 per person, with a maximum of $25 per family, free for under 1y.o.

Springs Brook Park has a decent sized parking lot, which is free. I like to get there as close as possible to opening as I can. I suggest arriving before 11am, or after 3pm.
Stuff to Do
- Sandy beach with shade

- picnic tables
- picnic blanket

- I also like bringing my beach shelter – the green one in the first picture.
