The Cobble Hill Association got recent word that the NYC Parks Department plans to shorten the outdoor pool season by two weeks citywide as well as pull the plug entirely on four pools with low attendance in order to save the city $1.4 million dollars. One of them unfortunately is our closest option, the Douglas – Degraw Pool. Though the Red Hook pool is wonderful and will remain open, the D & D pool is a much more realistic walking destination from Cobble Hill, especially with young children.
There is now a petition up which you can add your signature in just seconds, without any need for submitting donations.
UPDATE!!! Councilman Levin has come out in support of keeping the pool open. Read about it here…
