Hamilton Fish Pool Reopens for Shortened Summer Season
The Hamilton Fish Park Pool is finally open for the season.
The outdoor amenity – known to locals as Pitt Pool – returned yesterday as part of the city’s second phase of borough pool openings. Its original date was actually August 1, but “piping” issues reportedly caused delays.
“Due to an unanticipated failure of the piping system, we were unable to open Hamilton Fish Pool on Saturday,” a Parks Department spokesperson told The Village Sun.
Pool hours will be 11:00am to 3:00pm and 4:00pm to 7:00pm.
All pool goers are required to wear a face mask to enter the facility. Face coverings are also mandatory in locker rooms, bathrooms and on the pool deck. But not in the water.
Pool users are to maintain at least 6 feet of social distance, except between members of the same household. When the pool reaches capacity, patrons may be given a time to return to the line.
