Springwood Swim Club - Colonia, New Jersey
Nestled away from the hustle and bustle of Colonia's Inman Avenue is Springwood Swim Club, an idyllic daily vacation spot surrounded by a sprawling nine acres of wooded and recreational grounds.
Springwood's main attraction is the spring water-fed and heated 105' pool, rebuilt in 2009. It has a diving board with easy access entry points for all ages. Added perks are the waterpark-like slide and a basketball backboard, attracting young and old alike. The midsection of the pool is designed for the swimmer who wishes to exercise and enjoy a daily swim. It is also handicapped accessible with an operating chair lift. Alongside the main pool is a new, zero-entry kiddie/wading pool, bedecked with water showers ideal for youthful frolicking, yet constructed with child safety in mind.
If it's relaxation you want, feel free to lounge around the pool and take in those warming rays, or lie in the available shaded area on our comfortable lounge chairs. If the sounds of pool activity are too much, partake in a summer snooze under the shade of trees, then mosey on down to our beautiful grove. The grove is well-stocked with picnic benches and ample grounds, with facilities for barbecues and picnics.
The pool area provides another dining option, with a quaint space of patio tables [with umbrellas]. You can bring your own food or order from many of our local vendors who deliver to the Club regularly. Just visit our office and they will be happy to assist you.
Opening on Memorial Day and closing on Labor Day, the Springwood season is full of activities aside from its main poolside attraction. The Club is well known for its family-oriented, annual events such as family-style bbqs, Children's Carnival, Friday Nights at the Poolside, Rock 'n Roll Night, arts and crafts for the kids, Science Day, duck races and the wildly fun (and successful) Children's Triathlon- among many others.
The poolside and grove patios are also the scene of sponsored social events that provide for music, dance, food and drink. Members can look forward to nights such as Taste of Italy, Poolside Wine & Cheese Party, Martini Night and more. The total package offered by Springwood makes for a perfect place for both family and business organization events. Many of our members hold private functions and celebrations, both large and small, at very reasonable rates for their invited guests.
Springwood also boasts a competitive swim team, as well as swim lessons for children. Many club members have begun their swimming careers at Springwood and have advanced their skills in college. Tennis, basketball, wiffle ball courts, horseshoes and shuffle board are other sporting options. Playground equipment is included in the amenities.
Almost six decades ago, a group of enterprising young men wanted to find a place where they could play tennis, swim and provide a safe environment for their families without traveling for miles. Thus, Springwood was born at the property of McKinley and High Streets, over fifty-eight years ago. Family memberships were purchased in the hopes that it would start a long-standing tradition. For many of the original members, these traditions have lived on over the years; children and grandchildren of the original members are still enjoying the benefits that Springwood has to offer. Springwood Swim Club has been a source of excitement and energy for the Colonia community since 1954. We are proud to say nothing has changed!
Springwood is Bond Member owned and not for profit. Its membership consists of both Bond Members and Seasonal Members. Members' guests are welcome, too. You do not have to be a Colonia resident to join. Please see our Membership page regarding joining our family of members.
