Summer is almost here, and so is the opening date for Andretta Pool in Kingston, NY. Not only will the pool be free for residents once again this year when it opens on June 24th, but the city recently unveiled the latest results of their $2.5 million renovation project just in time for swim season.

Ulster county residents have more than a few choices when it comes to public pools, but the majority seem to lie not far from Route 32. Moriello Pool in New Paltz, NY, the Town of Rosendale Pool in Rosendale, NY, and the Andretta Pool in Kingston, NY could almost be connected by a straight line. Only one, however, recently received a multi-million dollar facelift.
