The New York City Parks Department will open public pools across the city this Wednesday at 11 a.m.
Parks Commissioner Mitchell Silver will be going to Fisher Pool at 99th Street and 32nd Avenue in East Elmhurst to kick off the new season. He will also cut the ribbon on improvements made to Fisher’s intermediate-sized (75 x 60 feet) pool.
The pool, which has not been renovated since it was built in the 1970s, has undergone a make over under the Cool Pools NYC program, where five pools across the city have been revamped—coming with a colorful paint job, new lounge chairs, new plantings and cabana-style shade structures.
Fisher has an intermediate pool and a smaller wading pool (20 x 20 feet).
All 53 NYC’s Parks’ outdoor pools will be open seven days a week from 11:00 a.m. to 3 p.m. and 4 p.m. to 7 p.m.
Pools close in the mid-afternoon for an hour for cleaning.
