NEW YORK - As of today, outdoor city pools are officially open for the summer season.

Lifeguards are typically on duty from 10 a.m. to 6 p.m., but all swimmers should double-check official hours at their local pool.

The nine city pools are open seven days a week until 7 p.m., and admission is free.

Hundreds of kids and adults jumped and splashed around at the city park pools today.
