NYC public pools are opening for the season on Thursday, June 27 – first day of public schools being closed for the summer. Outdoor pools will be open daily from 11am to 7pm, with a break for pool cleaning from 3 to 4pm.

Before showing up, make sure to review all rules for public pools. Here are some of the do’s and don’t’s for swimmers:
