POOL PROJECT: August 30, Hamilton Heights

by elizabeth | August 31st, 2010

Oops, I did it again!

This is a state park and not on the Parks Department list. After visiting twice (2004 and 2010) I have finally realized that the $2.00 fee and different hours indicate that Riverbank State Park is not a Parks & Rec pool! It is very nice, though.

What I should have gone to was Jackie Robinson Park, and so I shall….

But in the meantime, should you find yourself in the possession of $2 and free time in Hamilton Heights, I recommend you swim in this beautiful outdoor pool and perfect-temperature indoor pool right on the Hudson River. This is the only park I know of built on top of a wastewater treatment plant, but don’t let that discourage you. They have gorgeous facilities like a roller rink, football field and track….

….basketball courts, baseball diamond, and of course, the pools.

STATUS: 28 down (plus dumpster and state park), 7 to go
