A permanent pool is coming to Brooklyn Bridge Park! The location of the future pool will be Squibb Park, which sits above Pier 1 and is connected to the park by Squibb Park Bridge.
The construction of a pool at Squibb Park is estimated to cost between $10-$15 million. One-third of the capital funding for the project will be funded by Brooklyn Bridge Park; and the remainder will be raised publicly and privately in partnership with the Brooklyn Bridge Park Conservancy.
Brooklyn Bridge Park will host community planning sessions this summer and fall as the fundraising campaign continues, in advance of issuing a Request for Design Proposals. As the Park moves forward in the design, planning process, and fundraising campaign, the specific project timeline will be announced. However, the pool could open as early as 2020.
