If you love the chaos and joy of an all-ages pool in NYC, you’re good to go: The city’s outdoor pools are open – and packed. But if you’d prefer to swim and saunter poolside without having to dodge dive-bombs, consider Senior Splash.

Senior Splash is New York City Parks and Recreation department’s program of seniors-only pool hours, which this year extends to 15 pools citywide. If you’re age 62 or over, you’re eligible for seniors-only free swim and lap swim, along with aquatics exercise groups and swim instruction.

For anyone suffering from injury or physical ailments, the city’s adapted aquatics program is designed to help relieve pain, improve circulation and promote healing and muscle development. Click here for details.

Besides the obvious benefits of cool water, weightlessness, great exercise and fun in the sun, Senior Splash offers an opportunity to connect with people from your ‘hood.
