Pop-Up Pool

Take a dip in one of New York City’s coolest hidden gems, then relax on the beach after your swim.

From the June 26 to Labor Day weekend Brooklyn Bridge Park provides a great way to beat the summer head with the Pop-Up Pool!

The pool is 30 by 50 feet in size, and maxes out at an easy 3.5 feet deep—making it just right for families with smaller kids, too. Swimmers of all ages and levels are welcome to enter daily from 10 am to 6 pm for 45-minute sessions.


    - Children under 4 feet 2 inches must be accompanied by an adult in the pool.
    - Bathing suits are required on the deck and in the water
    - Follow the directives of lifeguards, Park staff and the police
