Summer is officially here! The season of warm weather, cool foods, and fun in the sun! But when the sun gets too hot for fun, grab your swimmies and go for a dip at any of these public pools in the Hudson Valley.

Because of the changing rules and regs, we suggest visiting each location's website and giving them a call to see if you can visit and use their facilities. We update these lists frequently but find it difficult to keep up with things that are going on.
