Dozens of outdoor city pools reopen for the season today (Thursday, June 29).
First, let's start with what won't be open — the Tompkins Square Park mini pool, which is looking science fiction-y...the field house renovations in Tompkins Square Park.
While the pool doesn’t appear to be part of the construction, it’s all about the plumbing, which we're told is a disaster.
And every year, we hear from people who had no idea there was a mini pool in Tompkins Square Park. The mini pool is open for children and their parents-guardians. Just there — under the arrows by the basketball courts... As for what is open...the Hamilton Fish Pool on Pitt and East Houston and the Dry Dock Pool on 10th Street and Avenue D.
Outdoor hours are from 11 a.m. through 7 p.m. daily, with a break for pool cleaning between 3 p.m. and 4 p.m. Find more info about city pools at this link.
The outdoor pools are in service through Sept. 10.
