New Extended Weekend Hours

Bard Athletic Center is piloting a new, extended weekend schedule in response to requests from our members. You will now be able to enjoy the athletic center for four to five additional hours each day of the weekend. You’ll also see increased pool time with earlier, more convenient open hours.

From Saturday, Feb. 24 through Sunday, May 27, Bard Athletic Center will observe the following weekend schedule:

Hours of Operation:

Saturday and Sunday: 8 a.m.-8 p.m.

Pool Hours:

Saturday and Sunday: 8:15 a.m.-10 a.m., and 11 a.m.-2 p.m.

Once the pilot has concluded, BAC will evaluate weekend usage and determine whether this new schedule should be implemented long-term. For more information, visit the BAC website.

Take a tour of Bard Athletic Center and become a member today.

Regular Hours of Operation

Our hours and scheduled activities are subject to change without prior notification, though we do our best to post information on our website when possible. BAC is closed on all Columbia University Medical Center-designated holidays.
