How to Purchase a Pool Pass


Visit the Medford Recreation Center located on 30 Forest Street. Passes will be on sale at that location from April 1 - June 21. Hours are Monday-Friday from 9:30am-12:30pm and Saturdays from 9:30am-2:00pm. After June 21, passes can be purchased at Tufts Pool and Wright’s Pond during normal operating hours.

Visit to purchase a pass. If you do not have a log in, please create a household account (give up to 48 hours for approval). Once your account has been created, you will receive an email confirmation and can then purchase a pass. Please print out your receipt or save the email confirmation. On your first visit to the pond or pool, show the Front Desk your receipt along with proof of residency. Recreation Staff members will issue you the vehicle pass or keytags. We will not be mailing passes this year to your home.

Proof of Residency:
When purchasing a Wright’s Pond pass or a Pool Membership in-person at the resident rate, or when you pick up your vehicle sticker/ keytag on your first visit, you will need to provide proof of residency. Please provide your driver license or Massachusetts ID with a Medford address. If you have recently moved to Medford, you may show a current utility bill that is in your name.
