Delafield Pond Update

Delafield Pond Update: 
For the past few years, the Army Corps of Engineers has been studying significant water leakage from the dam at Delafield Pond.  The goal was to determine the source of the leak and the feasibility of repairing it.  Unfortunately, it has been determined that a total replacement of the existing dam would be required, with a cost in excess of $3 million.  In light of these structural issues and a focus on community safety, Delafield Pond cannot be filled with water.  Additionally, Crandall Pool will be undergoing a major maintenance over the summer months to address critical deficiencies and will be unavailable for an extended period of time that is still to be determined.

West Point Family and MWR has been working a series of actions to provide the community with viable alternatives for the upcoming summer and the near future.  Round Pond Beach Area is currently undergoing a much needed enhancement with support from West Point DPW.  The existing beach area is being expanded and all of your favorite Delafield treats, including everyone’s favorite Slushie Machines, will be available there this summer.  Additionally, Round Pond offers paddle boats, canoes, kayaks, fishing, and one of the best playgrounds on West Point.

For a more extended day trip, we suggest a visit to Frog Falls Water Park at Picatinny Arsenal, which is less than 90 minutes away.  Featuring a lazy river, two high velocity slides, a wading pool and kid’s splash pad, this experience is a great trip for the whole family. More information can be found online at https://picatinny.armymwr.com/us/picatinny/programs/frog-falls-water-park

West Point Family and MWR is working hard to develop a long term solution in order to provide recreational swimming at West Point.  This is contingent on many things outside of the control of the installation, to including funding for projects of this type.  We will continue to champion a solution for the West Point Community until fruition.
