Make a Splash: Volta Park Pool Is Open
The D.C. Department of Parks and Recreation has opened its pools for Memorial Day weekend, including Georgetown’s only public pool at Volta Park (1555 34th St., NW) -- 202-645-5669.
For the weekend of June 2, outdoor pools will be open on weekends only (Fridays and Saturdays), from noon until 6 p.m., until June 17 when District Public Schools are dismissed for the summer months. After June 17, all outdoor pools will operate on a summer schedule —open six days a week and closed one day per week for cleaning and maintenance.
DPR Director Jesús Aguirre said: “While we want everyone to have a great time in the District’s pools, I would like to remind everyone that safety is key. We encourage everyone to learn how to swim and to follow all pool rules.”
Pool Schedule—General Public Swim: Monday through Friday 1 p.m. to 8 p.m.; Saturday and Sunday, noon to 6 p.m.
Lap Swim—Monday through Friday, 8 a.m. to 9:30 a.m.
