The pool will be a permanent fixture at Squibb Park.
In tandem with fundraising efforts, the park will host community planning sessions this summer and fall. A specific project timeline will be announced at a later date.
“Summer just isn’t summer without the sounds of laughter and splashing,” said Council Member Stephen Levin. “With this move, Brooklyn Bridge Park is making sure children and families around the borough and beyond can continue enjoying a pool for decades to come. The community made their voices heard when they showed how much a pool means to them. Let’s take that momentum and forge ahead.”
