The Brooklyn Bridge pop-up pool is about to open for the last time

It's last call for a free pool with an amazing view of the Manhattan skyline. The Brooklyn Bridge pop-up pool will open Wednesday, June 29 for its final season, DNAinfo reports

The pool that first opened in 2012 and allows 45-minute free, public swim sessions for swimmers from 10am to 6pm has always been set to close this year, while locals have been pushing to make it permanent. Once it closes after Labor Day, the site will turn into more parkland, a Brooklyn Bridge Park spokesman said. Senator Daniel Squadron, who helped set in motion the plan to keep the pool open for five years, now has joined the train to try and keep the pool for good. There's no funding for a permanent pool as of now, but families in the area are joining together to fight for it. 

Only time will tell what happens to the little pool that could, but we'd advise you to get there for a dip while you can!
