GOWANUS - Gowanus residents protested the closing of the Douglass-Degraw pool today.

The pool is one of four that will be closed due to budget cuts.

The closest pool for residents is in Red Hook, which parents say is too far to get to with young kids.

More than 3,500 tenants from three different housing developments use the pool during the summer.
