Next summer will be absolutely the last year for the pool, however, as it is located in the site of the planned Pier 2 uplands where construction is expected to begin in the fall of 2018.
What’s left unsaid is, what will replace it? We know that the site of the Pop-Up Pool is destined to become the “Pier 2 uplands,” which, it is said, will include a “water attraction.” Odds are, though, this will not be a pool into which kids can go and learn how to swim. So where will such a pool be? We have no assurances.
