Coytesville Park Kiddie Pool, Reunions, New Restaurant and More
About Town confirms Coytesville Park kiddie pool is closing
Tony Lione, Supervisor of the Fort Lee Parks Department, confirmed Tuesday that the Coytesville Park kiddie pool is no more. Lione explained that for many years the Coytesville Park pool kept breaking down and was becoming more and more costly and problematic to fix. Coupled with the fact that the number of swimmers had been dwindling each summer, compared to the amount of swimmers at the other kiddie pools, the decision was made to remove the pool. However, he said that no other park kiddie pool is scheduled to be removed, meaning there will be swimming this summer at Westview Park, Firemen’s Park, Inwood Terrace Park and the Recreation Center.

Khloe’s: Fort Lee’s Newest Restaurant
Khloe’s is a new farm to table restaurant that has opened in the space that will always be known as Jerry’s Pizzeria on Schlosser Street, right across the street from the almost defunct Borders. Stay tuned for our in-depth interview with Nina and Felix, the new owners of Khloe’s. We don’t want to give it away, but let’s just say that if this restaurant doesn’t take off and become an instant hit in Fort Lee, then About Town has lost all faith in our community.
