The Ossining Aquatic Center (aka the Rec Center Pool) is located towards the back of the Joseph G. Caputo Community Center on 95 Broadway.
To swim at the pool you need a Rec ID card and pool pass. These must be renewed annually. Instructions are below.
How do you get a Rec ID card?
There are two options to get a Rec ID card:
1. In person at the front desk of the recreation office in the community center. The office is right through the doors seen in the first photo below.
2. You can also register online. To register online for Ossining Recreation & Parks programs you must create a free account in Community Pass, and then go to the Catalog and Registration Page to access the Summer Catalog.
ID Card registration office hours
You can get/update a Rec ID card immediately during the following schedule. If you put in the paperwork after these hours, your application will be processed the next day and you’ll need to go back to pick up your ID:
- Monday – Friday: 9:00am – 8:00pm
- Tuesday – Friday: 9:00am – 9:00pm
- Saturday: 8:00am – 2:30pm
- Sunday: Closed
Required paperwork for the Rec ID
- To get your ID card you’ll need to complete a “Recreation ID Card and Membership Form” which you can download here and print out, or fill out in person at the office, where forms are always available. It’s one form per family.
- You’ll also need to bring valid photo ID and a supporting docoument to pay the lower fee if you live in the Village or Unincorporated Town of Ossining. Supporting documents include a current utility bill, lease, tax bill, or bank statement.
Rec ID cost
- If you are a Town or Village of Ossining resident, IDs cost $10 per person (youth or adult) and are payable by cash, check or money order (no credit cards). If your total is under $50.00, they accept cash (bring exact change), anything over that should be paid in check (payable to “Village of Ossining”) or money order.
- You can get an ID card if you are a non-resident (this includes Briarcliff Manor residents). The cost is $20.00 per Youth (under 21 years old) and $45.00 per adult.
- If you lose your Rec ID card, the replacement fee is $5.00.
