NYC Parks has announced today that due to upcoming emergency ceiling work at the Flushing Meadows Corona Park Aquatic Center, the pool will be closed to the public for at least 6 weeks starting on Monday, January 13, 2020.

This work will install extensive ceiling netting in the pool and rink areas, and will impact pool programming at the facility. There are no current plans to close the ice rink at this time.

“While we never wish to close our facilities, essential repairs must be made to ensure the safety of all who use the Aquatic Center,” said NYC Parks Commissioner Mitchell J. Silver, FAICP. “We are committed to the needs of the Queens community and will work hard to expedite these repairs and get everyone back into the pools before winter’s end. Thank you for your patience and understanding during this time.”

While the pool is closed, all aquatics programming will be cancelled. Recreation members are encouraged to utilize nearby Recreation Centers during this closure including: Al Oerter Recreation Center (131-40 Fowler Avenue); Lost Battalion Hall Recreation Center (93-29 Queens Boulevard); and Roy Wilkins Recreation Center (177th St & Baisley Boulevard), or visit one of NYC Parks’ Recreation Centers citywide.

For questions or comments about the indoor pool, please contact the Flushing Meadows Corona Park Aquatic Center at (718) 271-7572.
