Thursday, June 28th marks the grand opening of McCarren Park Pool in McCarren Park, Brooklyn. I should say re-opening. Located within the 35-acre McCarren Park, McCarren Pool was one of eleven pools opened by Robert Moses in 1936. The pool closed in 1984 and sat unused until the summer of 2005, when the empty pool basin opened as a popular venue for concerts, dance, and movies. Thanks to the $50 million in funding allocated through Mayor Bloomberg’s PlaNYC initiative, McCarren Pool has been rebuilt as a center for year-round recreation and will have its grand re-opening on Thursday, June 28th.
