26 Jun Free Outdoor NYC Pools Open Friday June 27 for the Summer
NYC’s outdoor pools will be open from June 27 to September 1. Indoor pools are open year-round.
Every day during the summer pool season, thousands of visitors head to the city’s free public outdoor pools. Learn more about the pools, and dive in to find an outdoor pool near you!

Outdoor pool hours are from 11:00 a.m. through 7:00 p.m., with a break for pool cleaning between 3:00 p.m. and 4:00 p.m. Early bird and night owl lap swim hours are also available at select sites.
Know Before You Go
You’ll need to have a swimsuit to enter the pool area. They may choose to check men’s shorts for a lining if we can’t tell if they are wearing a bathing suit. Feel the need to cover up from the sun? Throw on a plain white shirt or white hat and you’re set. We don’t allow shirts with colors on them on the deck.
For the Kids
Thinking of bringing floaties? It’s safer to leave them at home and just stay in the shallow end of the pool until everyone learns to swim. Want to venture deeper? Try some of the free swimming classes. Babies or toddlers can put on swim diapers before they head into the water. While you may be able to find a place to park your stroller, there will be no-one who keep an eye on it for you, so bring it at your own risk.
