View Free outdoor pools in New York City in a larger map

 

Summer's here -- time to take a dip in one of New York City's free outdoor swimming pools.

 

Outdoor pool season starts Friday and runs through Sept. 1. The pools are open daily from 11 a.m. to 7 p.m., with a break for cleaning between 3 and 4 p.m.

 

And be sure to check out our map of the city's public beaches.

 

Here are some outdoor pool tips/rules from the Parks Department:


-- Swimsuits must be warn in in the pool area (officials may check men's shorts for lining)

-- Plain white shirts and hats can be worn, but no shirts with colors are allowed on deck

-- It's safer for kids not to use floaties in the pools

-- Babies and toddlers can put on swim diapers before going into the water

-- Bring a stroller at your own risk

-- Leave food, glass bottles, electronic devices and newspapers at home
