There are 9 comments on Need to Cool Off? Head to One of the Boston Area’s Many Public Pools

  1. Dear “public swimming pools”, the first pool listed in Cleveland Circle is in Brighton, which is a neighborhood in Boston. It’s actually not too far from BU-you can take the B line and get off at “Chestnut Hill Ave” and talk a left on Chestnut Hill Ave, and the pool is only about a block away from there.

  2. When you romanticize about the perfect swimming hole, you likely envision a deep, cool pool you have to hike a bit to get to, a hidden spot off the beaten path. Sennett Hole might not be a secret, but the mile-long hike in gives that impression. This Olympic-size swimming hole, rimmed by sycamores, rock and a waterfall, enables you to dive as much as 8 feet under to encounter chilling waters. Stretch out on a chaise lounge rock to dry away the chill, and repeat as often as time allows.
