WILLIAMSBURG — McCarren Pool's grand opening is Thursday — and Mayor Michael Bloomberg might just get splashed.

The mayor will be cutting the ribbon to the long-awaited 37,950-square-foot renovated pool at 9:30 a.m., the North Brooklyn non-profit Open Space Alliance announced.

Next to the 1,500-swimmer mecca, a rec center will debut, featuring year-round gym and cardio equipment and fitness classes.

The pool offers free admission and membership to the rec center is $100 annually, Parks officials said.

Visitors can RSVP to Thursday's ribbon-cutting ceremony by emailing rsvp@parks.nyc.gov. Space is limited for the event.
