Conklin & Glenside Pools

The Township building is closed to the public so there will not be an in-person pool membership registration on Saturday, May 29th, 2021.

If you know someone looking for part time summer work, we are hiring lifeguards and swim instructors. Click here for more information.

There are no in person registrations scheduled at this time. Please read this informational flyer for more details about registration. Click here for a printable pool application. Please fill out the pages and return them with your check or money order made payable to "Cheltenham Township". You do not need to mail back the fourth page. The application and payment should be mailed to:
Cheltenham Township, Parks and Recreation
8230 Old York Road
Elkins Park, PA 19027
PLEASE NOTE! Only returning pool members may mail in an application and payment. New members still need to be verified to be processed. If you are new and plan to mail your form you will need to include birth certificates for children and driver's licenses for the adults for verification. If you are including that sensitive information you do not have to mail the documents, you may use our drop box located at 8230 Old York Road, Elkins Park, PA 19027. The secure drop box is locked and under camera surveillance and is located at our front door. Please be sure to seal the envelope and write Parks and Recreation on it.  
If you need assistance, please call 215-887-6200 ext. 227 or email [email protected].

*Membership cards or tags are not mailed to residents. You may pick these up the first time you visit the pool. You will be required to show your driver's license so the staff can be sure to hand you the correct membership cards/tags.*

Memberships are valid for both pools, but we ask you to chose the pool you will visit more often as your main pool on the application. That pool is the one that we will send your membership card/tag to for pick-up. (All cards/tags will be at Glenside Pool from May 29, 2021 until Conklin Pool opens June 19, 2021. At that time any cards marked for Conklin Pool will be taken to that pool for pick-up.)

Cheltenham Township offers two pools, Glenside Pool located at 185 South Keswick Avenue in Glenside and Charles D. Conklin, Jr. Pool located at 15 East Church Road in Cheltenham.
