State Senator Daniel Squadron has notified us of a rally to save the much loved Pop-Up Pool (photo) in Brooklyn Bridge Park tomorrow (Thursday, August 18) starting at noon, on the Pier 2 uplands next to the pool. The rally is organized by Senator Squadron, “Love Our Pool: Families United For A Pool in Brooklyn Bridge Park,” and community members. The Senator will release hundreds of petition signatures to save the Brooklyn Bridge Park Pop-Up Pool and the results of his survey in report titled Making a Splash: The Pop-Up Pool in Brooklyn Bridge Park. According to the press release:
Squadron’s office conducted the survey this summer in collaboration with “Love Our Pool.” The survey found that the pool serves a broad community, is the only swimming option for many families, and is so popular, swimmers keep coming back.
