Marco!…. D.C. Pools Open

We are sorry to inform you that bathing suit season is here.


Rejoice, and prepare for a summer of weird tan lines and swimmer's ear!

The District has opened its outdoor swimming pools for the season today, and D.C. residents swim free. For suburbanites whose pools just aren't good enough, there's a small fee.

There are 18 public pools to choose from, from Anacostia to Volta Park. Pool hours are 12-6 p.m. on the weekends and 1-8 p.m. Monday through Friday.

One warning, though, if you're lucky enough to be lounging around during the week: Pools close one weekday each week for scheduled service and maintenance.
