Boston’s Pools Opening Soon for Summer

Kids with the Gregg House day care center located in Lynn, enjoy their field trip to Boston and the Christian Science Center Plaza's fountain.

Soon, you’ll be able to cool down in a city pool any day of the week.

The city announced on Monday that Boston’s 10 Centers for Youth and Families (BCYF) city swimming pools and one city beach will stay open every day of the week starting on June 29. 

In addition to the 10 pools open seven days a week, all of the city’s pools are open on Sundays from 11:30 a.m. to 6:30 p.m. During the week, pool hours vary depending on location. 

Luckily for South Enders, one pool that will remain open all week is the South End’s BCYF Blackstone pool, located on 50 West Brookline St.

This year marks the second in a row the city has decided to open its pools early. 

“With the warm weather on its way, we want our residents to be able to beat the heat seven days a week,” Mayor Tom Menino said. “We have amazing facilities in the city, and I encourage all our families to take advantage of them.”

The BCYF pools that will open seven days a week are:

  • BCYF Blackstone (South End)
  • BCYF Clougherty (Charlestown) – outdoor pool
  • BCYF Curley Beach (South Boston) – beach
  • BCYF Curtis Hall (Jamaica Plain)
  • BCYF Draper (West Roxbury)
  • BCYF Flaherty (Roslindale)
  • BCYF Holland (Dorchester)
  • BCYF Mason (Roxbury)
  • BCYF Mildred Avenue (Mattapan)
  • BCYF Mirabella (North End) – outdoor pool, opens June 22
  • BCYF Paris Street (East Boston)
