+ Pool is designed in the shape of a plus or cross and can be utilized in a number of different ways. With four distinct areas, the floating pool [2] offers a variety of activities for different types of swimmers. Two shallower pools serve as a lounge and kid’s pool, while two deeper pools serve as a lap swim area and a sports pool. The whole pool can be used for larger swim events or opened up to 9,000 sq ft for free swim.

With so many new and developing parks around the city, the + Pool has a wide range of options for locations in the New York City rivers – including East River State Park, Brooklyn Bridge Park, Riverside State Park, Battery Park City, Chelsea Piers or Governor’s Island. The pool would be constructed of concentric layers of water-cleansing [3] materials that remove bacteria, pollutants and odors, leaving clean and safe water for swimming.
