We had a great and hot summer during the Fall Semester 2015. When studying in New Paltz you should definitely take some beaks and visit the Ulster Country Pool Area several times. It does not matter if you stay one hours or even the whole day.

The Ulster County Pool Complex is an outdoor swimming pool that is close to Sunny Campus. The complex is quite old and seems to be out of a different era, nevertheless it is clean and perfectly equipped. There is one kiddy pool and also an Olympic size swimming pool. Next to each pool area is a lifeguard sitting and watching the pool carefully. The pool is surrounded by a very nice and spacious grass-area where you can lie down and enjoy the sun.

Moreover there is a large pavilion with picnic tables. Therefore you can bring your own food or buy some cold and hot snacks at the kiosk. The atmosphere is really calm and very relaxed.

Entrance: 4 Dollar

Taxi costs from Sunny Campus to Pool: 6 Dollar
