River Pool is a partly submerged wading pool placed within the flowing waters of the Hudson River. Currently, there is a prototype of the River Pool situated in the town of Beacon, New York and being used by the public at large. River Pool floats above the Hudson Riverbed, allowing water to flow through the mesh-bottomed wading pool. This also enables the River Pool to respond to the gentle rhythms of the tides of the river. River Pool is a new and unique design that dramatizes the ongoing cleaning-up efforts in the Hudson River; promoting low-impact public access for swimming, and bringing people and the aquatic environment together.
