|   City News

Mayor Domenic J. Sarno, Executive Director of Parks, Buildings and Recreation Management (PBRM) Patrick Sullivan, and Aquatics Director Joseph Federico  announce that the Forest Park swimming pool will remain open through Sunday, August 20, 2023. The Forest Park pool is open every day of the week from 11:00am – 6:30pm.

Mayor Sarno states, “I want to remind residents to stay hydrated, check on your elderly neighbors, be mindful of your pets, and please take advantage of our wonderful park facilities that offer the resources to stay cool during these hot days of summer.  I also want to thank Parks Director Patrick Sullivan and Aquatics Director Joe Federico and team for their dedication to providing a safe and fun environment to enjoy aquatics activities.”

City residents who wish to participate in the free summer public swimming at the Springfield pool, and do not have a valid pool pass, must pre-register and then obtain a free photo ID.  Each member of the family must have an ID card to swim. 

If you have access to a computer, go to and register.  We will continue to issue pool passes until August 20th at Cyr Arena, right next to Forest Park Pool, from 10:00am – 6:00pm. If you do not have access to a computer, then simply come to Forest Park, and we will register your family for you.

Enjoy these last few remaining hot days, in a safe and fun environment for the entire family! After all, why just float through life, when you can swim? We look forward to seeing you at the pool for the rest of the summer. For more information, please call the Aquatics Director, at (413) 787-6298.
