POOLS IN HARLEM

 

Lasker Pool Harlem

 

It is hard to imagine that it is already the second week of August.  This summer has flown by and the heat is rising with it.  We have many options in Harlem with which to cool down.  Here is a reminder of the pools located in the Harlem area that you can use to beat the heat.  Many of these pools have designated hours for swimming laps in the early morning and evenings.   Check with the lifeguards at the location nearest you for exact hours or call the phone number listed below or click on the links provided for details for each location.

Pool Hours

Outdoor pool hours are from 11:00 a.m. through 7:00 p.m., with a break for pool cleaning between 3:00 p.m. and 4:00 p.m..

Indoor pools are open year-round. Check with the individual recreation centers for schedules. Recreation center membership ($150 per year for adults; $25 per year for seniors; free for children and teens under the age of 18) is required for the use of our indoor pools.
