Public pools in Brooklyn.

Brooklyn´s public swimming pools in summer

As our steamy New York City summer gets started, plan your heat relief at one of Brooklyn’s 15 free outdoor public pools. Pools open tomorrow, June 29 and stay open until September 10 this year, so you don’t need to go too far to jump in.

NYC Parks hosts free programming like adaptive swim, senior swim, and Learn to Swim classes for kids and adults. And new this year, all NYC Parks outdoor pools will feature free sunscreen dispensers.

Pool hours are 11am to 7pm, seven days a week (Note: pools close for one hour between 3pm and 4pm for cleaning).

First, check out some pool rules. We’ve slimmed them down a bit, but you can see the complete list of rules here, and be sure to stick to them because most pools check before you go in. The pools.
