LoveOurPool: Families United for a Pool in Brooklyn Bridge Park
Thank you to everyone who signed our petition to ensure we keep a pool in Brooklyn Bridge Park. We've had over 1500 petition signers (including the 750+ people who have signed paper petitions at the pool)!
Through this petition we were successful in securing 2 additional summers for families at the Pop-Up Pool (Summer 2017 & Summer 2018). And in June 2018, the Brooklyn Bridge Park Corporation announced that we would indeed get a permanent pool in the adjacent Squibb park with a targeted opening date of 2020.
We're grateful to the Brooklyn Bridge Park Corporation and our elected officials for coming together and paving a creative path towards a permanent solution. Many thanks also to this community who pulled together on behalf of tens of thousands of swimmers each summer to keep a pool in Brooklyn Bridge Park.
Please visit Love Our Pool on Facebook page to be kept up to date on information regarding the new, permanent pool. Next up, Community Planning Sessions held in concert with Brooklyn Bridge Park, to help determine priorities and design features for the new pool.
