Town of Oxford

The Town of Oxford, NY encompasses approximately 132 square miles, and includes the Village of Oxford, which is about 1 square mile in size. Often confused for one another, the Oxford Village Goverment is responsible for what takes place only within that smaller area and is separate from the Oxford Town Government. The Town Government is responsible for overseeing all the communities within that larger area, handling road maintenance, the community pool and more.

Oxford Town Pool Closure Notice: 2020
Due to a variety of health, safety and repair concerns, the Oxford Town Pool will not be open for the Summer of 2020.

The Oxford Town Board is moving forward with plans to start construction of a new pool facility. The goal is to have the project completed and operational for the Summer of 2021. The Town Board originally planned the new construction to begin after the 2020 pool season. However, with the uncertainty of the COVID-19 Pandemic, the costly repairs to reopen the pool and construction traffic for the new school bus garage, it has been decided that beginning the process as soon as possible would be the best course of action. The Board appreciates the community's understanding and looks forward to providing another 40+ years of safe swimming fun for the Oxford Community.

POOL HISTORY: The Oxford Swimming Pool and Bath House was dedicated to the youth of Oxford in 1978 by the Oxford Recreation Association, the Town & Village Boards of Oxford, and the Citizens of the Community. The picnic pavilion was donated by the Oxford Rotary Club. In 2008, the pool's 30-year-old feeder pumps, electrical work and concrete surface were brought up to code.
The pool is managed by the Town of Oxford Land & Water Conservation Fund, a cooperative project of the National Park Service-Department of the Interior & the NYS Office of Parks, Recreation and Historic Preservation.
