Paul Lozito started this petition to NYC Parks

Grand Concourse neighborhood residents request for NYC Parks to extend pool hours at Mullaly Park. Our community would like to provide more time for children to use the pool and reserved time for adults, particularly seniors. 

Last year, the Mullaly Park pool opened from 11:00 AM - 3:00 PM and from 4:00 PM to 7:00 PM.  This year, we request for NYC Parks to open the pool from 7:00 AM to 10:00 AM and from 7:00 PM to 8:00 PM. The 7:00 AM - 10:00 AM enables an adult swim, particularly seniors, to use the facility in addition to active adults who want to swim laps. The 7:00 PM to 8:00 PM time slot allow for children to enjoy more time during hot summer evenings. 

At present, our community utilizes the pool fully for every hour it is open. Extended hours enables children without access to air conditioning to keep cool, and provides a critical seasonal, popular opportunity for recreation. Extended hours allow for interested adults to use the pool for exercise. It is well documented that our diverse and vibrant community includes many households without access to financial resources to pay for pools with more generous hours. Further, it is well documented that exercise addresses part of the health and equity needs of our community.

If you endorse this petition, you believe the pool hours should be extended and you have an interest in participating.
