JOHN P. BURKE MEMORIAL POOL - Woodbury Parks and Recreation Community Survey
RequiredRequired Question(s)

Everyone is experiencing challenges in ways we've never seen before. After the pandemic, there will be a new normal. We hope everyone is well and is planning for that day. In Woodbury, we are keeping the process of re-opening our parks going so that when we reach that new norm, all our parks will be ready. 

One of the unique amenities of our community is our beloved John P. Burke Memorial Pool.

In order to address the immediate needs of the pool so that we can reopen it as quickly as possible, the Town Board has held numerous work sessions to discuss and address the size, design, and cost of the pool.

The Town Board and Parks and Recreation Committee seek to include Woodbury residents in the pool selection process. The community will be provided with concept design pool options, costs, and projected tax impact for residents depending on house value. Please review this information prior to completing the survey. 

After reviewing the information, we ask that you complete the survey below. Your input is valuable and we appreciate in advance the time you commit to this process. 

Please complete this survey on, or before, May 18, 2020 at 12 pm. No other survey entries will be accepted beyond this time.

The Town Board seeks to use this survey to consider the size of the pool that will be selected to replace the existing pool.  The results of this survey will be shared with the community.

Please take a few minutes to share your thoughts in the survey below. Thank you.
