McCarren Park Pool

McCarren Park Pool is one of the youngest entertainment destinations in Brooklyn. Although the pool has existed in McCarren Park in Brooklyn since 1936, it acquired its new identity in 2012. Next to the historic pool, a recreational facility was created, which has been the venue for several free and ticketed live music performances. Ample space and a well-designed structure make this open-air venue a great place to catch some fun with family and friends. Pool party shows by live bands are held every Sunday for free of cost. And there can be no better romantic setting for an outdoor film festival, that is conducted here for an entire month. The 37,950 square foot pool is a great way to beat the heat, with plenty of room for everyone.
