World’s Coolest Public Pools

public pools

One of my favorite things about living in Santa Barbara was how many public amenities there were, including all kinds of city-maintained beautiful parks and trails, city rec leagues, and of course, the beach. The experience of seeing people everyday playing beach volleyball, windsurfing, playing soccer/baseball/ultimate frisbee, barbecuing, running on the sidewalk along the beach, and just generally enjoying life outside, for free, made me really value public amenities.

So, I thought these public pools rocked!! It makes me so happy when fun things in beautiful spots are made available for free.

Also, if you missed it, check out this pool, called +Pool, being proposed for the East River in NYC (using kickstarter)! Btw, +Pool achieved almost double their funding goal on kickstarter! For two more interesting pool/public design projects, check out this article.
