Park and Pools Management:
Greene County is home to many parks, pools and recreation facilities, all offering residents and visitors numerous spots to spend their leisure time.
Military members must bring their military identification cards to receive passes. Military pool passes are issued to active military and their immediate family (Military, spouse, & children, living in the same household). To receive this military pass, the military person must initially come to the recreation office to have their ID copied and application filled out. Once that is done, the information is passed on to each of the county pools.
Children attending Day Camp with the County program will pay a discounted rate of $2 per day to visit any of the county pools during the camp hours of 10:00 a.m. to 3:00 p.m.
Also returning in 2017 will be the "Canary Library." While the pools are open, carts containing library books of interest for all ages will be available at each of the sites. Children and adults alike are encouraged to take a book, read and enjoy it, then either return it to the pool or keep it – all for free and without a library card.
