  • This little park in the Bronx is bursting with activity. Located on the beautiful East River waterfront, fishers can sit on its piers and cast a line, and boaters take out canoes and kayaks for a turn around the river. Other attractions include a volleyball net, basketball court, and a playground.

    But for those looking for a more relaxing time, the park, with its beautiful background of sky, grass, and water, makes a perfect place to spending the day reading or picnicking.

    Free Outdoor Pools

    Location: Tiffany Street & Viele Avenue

    Phone: (718) 430-4601

    What to Bring

    Make sure you have a sturdy combination lock when you head out to the pool. It will keep your valuables safe, and let you hit the water feeling more secure about your belongings.

    What Not to Bring

    You’ll need to leave food, glass bottles, electronic devices, and newspapers at home. Unbound periodicals tend to blow around and create litter, food can be messy to clean up after, and there’s too much water around to make sure your electronics stay safe.  Just to be on the safe side, we also recommend leaving valuables like jewelry and credit cards at home.

    What to Wear

    You’ll need to have a swimsuit to enter the pool area. We may choose to check men’s shorts for a lining if we can’t tell if they are wearing a bathing suit. Feel the need to cover up from the sun? Throw on a plain white shirt or white hat and you’re set. We don’t allow shirts with colors on them on the deck.

    For the Kids

    Thinking of bringing floaties? It’s safer to leave them at home and just stay in the shallow end of the pool until everyone learns to swim. Want to venture deeper? Try some of our free swimming classes.

    Babies or toddlers can put on swim diapers before they head into the water. While we may be able to find a place to park your stroller, we can’t keep an eye on it for you, so bring it at your own risk.
