West Caldwell-Caldwell Recreation

West Caldwell is especially proud of its Recreation Program which is considered one of the finest and most comprehensive in New Jersey. Programs and activities are administered by the West Caldwell Parks and Recreation Department, located at 5 Fairfield Avenue, across from the Fire Department. All programs, activities, and park facilities are available for enjoyment by both West Caldwell and Caldwell residents. A large number of programs are offered to children of all ages as well as adults.

The two municipal pools are operated by the West Caldwell Pool Utility. Certain seasonal recreation activities are run at these sites through the courtesy of the Pool Utility. (For further information, see Pool Utility.)

Without a doubt, the single most important aspect of a successful program are the volunteer coaches and instructors. It is characteristic of our community spirit that so many have so willingly shared their talent and time with our children, With expanding participation in over 80 programs, we are always in need of volunteers for many programs. If you have questions, or would like details about anything we offer, please call 226-3621, or stop by.
