  • At 110,000 square feet, this facility is the largest recreation complex ever built in a city park and the first public pool to be built in four decades.
  • This $66.3 million aquatic center and its ten-lane, indoor pool were commissioned as part of NYC's bid for the 2012 Olympics. Dive, splash, and swim for just $5 a day. Our pick for Best Public Pool!
  • The pool was once intended to serve as a centerpiece of the NYC 2012 Olympic bid. Now, you can swim in an Olympic Games worthy pool for jus the cost of a recreation center membership.
  • Dive into the Aquatic Centers Olympic-sized pool. Located on the second floor, it offers dramatic views of the park.
  • Best time for an actual workout here in the pool with minimal crowds? Weekends at noon. (if the lifeguard says so it's true)
  • Swim cap and lock required, you can get there for $30 - locks are cheaper at Home Depot ($5) and caps can be found across the street at light store for $8 ("caps" and "locks" spray-painted on wall)
  • This park is just incredible. There is so much to see & do. It's huge & a great place to run, walk your dog, catch a soccer or cricket game, picnic, lay around, get your Mister Softee, & so on
  • Very convenient and sizeable pool. Parking available and easy to access. Only gripe is with idiots who swim in the fast lane doing breast stroke, otherwise a definitely awesome place!
  • Practice your hockey skills or perfect your figure eights at the World Ice Arena, home to an NHL-regulation sized ice rink.
  • FYI. If your not a member but want to use the pool. It's $5 for the 7' deep pool and you need to wear a swim cap and bring your own lock for the lockers. Best to go during weekdays late or morning.
  • Whenever the City Aquatics hosts [Free] US Masters meets, it is worth the time to update your membership and sign up for as many events and team relays as possible.
  • The pool is very good ,unfortunately the lockers are totally inadequate especially in the winter and must be replaced.
  • what are the requirements and fees for seniors and other mrmbers of the family/
  • Must have a credit card or debit card with a state issued photo id to sign up for membership. It's 25 dollar annually for age 24 or below and 125 for above.
  • Something about a cow dropping patties on the floor. And watch out for the dancing chinese Mafia!
  • People here are fat. Nuff said.
  • Go to the ice skating rink to cool off with these heat wave.
  • Free wifi service!
  • If you are interested in US Masters Swimming meets: this is one of the better locations for meets.
  • This pool is amazingly similar to the pool in Eisenhower Park on Long Island.
