The Windmuller Park Pool in Woodside opened for the season today along with 52 other outdoor New York City pools.

The NYC Parks Dept. opened the outdoor pools today in accordance with city tradition. The pools typically open the day after public schools close.

“Summer is here which means our pools and beaches are open to enjoy,” said New York City Mayor Eric Adams. “I encourage New Yorkers to take advantage of the city’s public pools to stay cool, get some exercise, and have fun.”

There are seven outdoor pools in Queens, which include the Astoria Park Pool, Fisher Pool in East Elmhurst, Fort Totten Pool in Bay Terrace, Liberty Pool in Jamaica, Marie Curie Park Pool in Bayside, PS 186 Playground Pool in Bellerose, and the Windmuller Park Pool in Woodside.

The pools will be open from today through Sunday, Sept. 11. Daily hours are 11 a.m. to 3 p.m. and 4 p.m. to 7:00 p.m. Entry is free.

Operations will be adjusted as needed based on daily lifeguard coverage to keep swimmers safe.

NYC Parks Commissioner Sue Donoghue, who held a season kickoff event at Hamilton Fish Pool in Manhattan this morning, said: “It’s time to make a splash: New York City’s outdoor pools are open!”

Use to see fecal logs in the Astoria public pool years so. Gross. What’s wrong with people?

Op-ed: An urgent call for revising NY’s criminal justice reforms to protect public safety

Apr. 11, 2024 By Council Member Robert Holden

In 2019, the State Legislature and Governor Andrew Cuomo embarked on a controversial overhaul of New York’s criminal justice system by enacting several laws, including cashless bail and sweeping changes to discovery laws. Simultaneously, the New York City Council passed laws that compounded these challenges, notably the elimination of punitive segregation in city jails and qualified immunity for police officers. These actions have collectively undermined public safety and constrained law enforcement effectiveness.
