The pool was cleared out around 1:00 p.m.
A parks worker said the pool would reopen Sunday according to DNAinfo. The worker would not say why the pool had closed for the day.
Officials from the Department of Parks and Recreation did not immediately return calls Saturday afternoon.
The pool has been shut down several times since its June 28 opening, following a $50 million renovation after years of laying fallow.
Trouble for the massive public pool started the day after it opened, when a brawl among teenagers sent swimmers home early. The NYPD and Parks Department beefed up security after the fights, and in the wake of rampant bike thefts around the pool's perimeter.
