Outdoor pools open May 26 for weekends! Normal hours start June 18

It's warming up out there, and that's made me dream of hitting the pool lately. Luckily, we'll be able to jump in soon. The city's outdoor pools, which are free to residents and $5 otherwise, will be opening May 26 for Saturdays and Sundays from noon to 6 pm, and then all week starting June 18.

The nearest pool for most of us is the Banneker Pool at Georgia and Euclid, and there's also the Harry Thomas Pool (not Jr.) near North Capitol and S, plus the Upshur Pool near 14th and Arkansas. There's also indoor pools in Adams Morgan (Marie Reed) and Shaw (Dunbar.)

The pools are a lot of fun, and I can't wait. I'm also looking forward to some post-pool eats at Mama Chuy's and J. Bell's Winghouse, both right near the Banneker Pool.
