Pop-Up Pool in Brooklyn Bridge Park to Open Thursday, June 29

The Pop-Up-Pool in Brooklyn Bridge Park will re-open this Thursday, June 29. The opening will be at 11:00 a.m., and the group Love Our Pool plans a “little reception” at opening time.

The pool was slated to be removed after last year’s season, but got a one year lease on life thanks to the efforts of local residents and State Senator Daniel Squadron. At the time, Brooklyn Bridge Park Corporation officials said they would allow a one year extension while they considered other ways to provide a swimming venue. At present we have no indication of any such plans, so Love Our Pool has posted a petition on line to keep the pool open beyond the 2017 season. You may read, and if you wish sign it here.
