Instead of being surrounded by hard cement or concrete, Idlewild Pool re-creates a beach atmosphere with a sandy shore that gradually descends into a community swim space. Beyond a set of ropes, the sandy bottom falls away and the pool begins. For those who don?t want to feel the sand between their toes, a water slide and diving board offer an alternative way to splash in. Certified lifeguards are on duty to ensure a safe environment and swimming lessons can help train paddlers how to propel themselves through the water. Idlewild also provides a venue for picnics, barbecues, and birthday parties.

Within the 5,000-square-foot Ballplayer’s Edge facility, baseball and softball players train to swing the bat faster, throw the ball harder, and play the game better. The facility’s crack team of coaches—led by Joel Burgos, hitting coach for Rutgers University-Newark—improve strength, agility, and instincts with training tools that include four adult-size batting cages and the ProBatter PX2 hitting simulator. The simulator immerses players in game-like situations, complete with virtual pitchers delivering strikes from either the windup or the stretch. Meanwhile, RightView Pro video analysis captures each home-run cut, shown bunt, and taunt lobbed at the computerized player, allowing for side-by-side comparison with major-league swings.
