Sometimes, all you need is a way to cool down on a hot summer day. Maybe you don't have access to a pool in your back yard. Lucky for you, many cities in New York have public pools that you can take advantage of during the season.

But, when are they open, and is there anything you need to do to be able to swim? We've got all the answers for you.

The City of Rome has several pools for people to utilize over the summer. In order to be able to use them, you either have to pay a fee for entrance, or, you can buy a season swim pass.

Rome Swim Pass Prices:

Individual Resident: $25
Individual Non-Resident $35
Family Pass: Both Resident and Non-Residents – $50

Two of the five pools are full pools, and three are wading pools. "The city pools are generally open five days a week for seven weeks in the summer, starting in late June through mid-August." according to the City of Rome Department of Parks, Recreation, and Community Activities.
