Are there any public pools for Putnam County residents?The opinions expressed here are those of the individual and not those of StreetAdvisor. Report
Public pools would be more under the jurisdiction of individual towns, unless they're part of the New York State system. You'd have to target the town in which you'd like to swim, then go from there (for instance: in Fishkill, there's a large water park called Splash Down, with numerous pools, slides, water rides, etc.) But even if you're in Putnam County you can go to Bear Mountain State Park, right over the Bear Mt Bridge (it's actually in Orange County), where they have an enormous pool which is open from June until the beginning of September. It's $2.00 for adults, $1.00 for kids, and no charge for kids under 5. The park also has a large play field, a lake where you can rent rowboats, a Trailside Musueum and Zoo, and great hiking, and biking trails. The view from the top of Bear Mt. is spectacular!
Very upsetting no public swimming pools in Putnam County NY... So far to drive to other counties... Lake Carmel has that blue green algie problem from septic s running into the water. They sure need to get up to speed and get more recreation here like a indoor pool for year round swimming. Very sad.
