City Releases Plans for Swimming Pools

Pools for website

The city will continue extended hours at Spratt Park Pool each day until Aug. 25.

The city demolished the old pool house at the Pulaski Park pool site and is using $2.4 million in American Rescue Plan Act funds to cover the cost. The new pool house will include a men’s room, women's room, family bathrooms, lifeguard room, office welcome desk, storage area and a kitchen.

The Pulaski construction has necessitated the closure of that pool this summer.

Dutchess County is providing free bus service from the Pulaski location to Spratt Pool on Tuesdays and Thursdays, making it easier for residents living near the Pulaski site to get to and from the Spratt Pool. This is a special route service that is not making additional stops.

Spratt Pool is open with fees waived again this year and with expanded hours — from 8 7 pm Monday through Friday. The first two hours are for lap swimming for adults and competitive level swimmers. Swimming lessons commence at 10 am and continue until noon. Lesson sign-up sheets are available at the pool.  Open, recreational swimming is available from noon until close.

 On weekends, Spratt Pool is open from 9 am to 7 p .m., the first two hours for adult and competitive swimmers and from 11 a.m. to close for general swim. 

The pool rules can be seen here.

On a first-come, first-served basis, bus transportation is available from Pulaski Park off Washington Avenue to the Spratt Park Pool site off Wilbur Boulevard at 11 a.m. and 2 p.m. on Tuesdays and Thursdays, and returning trips will be made 2:30 pm and 6 pm.

There is also a fixed-route bus service requiring a fare that has stops at Pulaski Park, the Transit Hub on Market Street and the corner of Hooker Avenue and Wilbur Boulevard, which is about a .5 mile walk from Spratt Pool. That schedule can be seen here, and the Dutchess County Public Transit website is
