Boston Outdoor Swimming Pools Reopen By Appointment Only

BOSTON (WBZ NewsRadio) — Following the city's first heatwave of the summer, Boston Mayor Marty Walsh said residents can use the city's two public outdoor swimming pools, under strict COVID-19 health and safety guidelines.

The BCYF Clougherty Pool in Charlestown and the BCYF Mirabella Pool in the North End are now both open, with 40 percent capacity restrictions. However, walk-ins will not be allowed -- swimmers will have to pre-register online first.

Swimmers can pick one of three available 90-minute daily sessions per day, with an hour allotted in between each session for cleaning.

Both pools will be open every day between 11 a.m. and 5:30 p.m. from Wednesday, July 22nd through Labor Day, Monday September 7th.

In addition to Boston's two outdoor public pools, there are also dozens of swimming pools and spray decks that have reopened through the state Department of Conservation and Recreation.
