The weather is getting warmer, which means I start to wish the pool were open. And thankfully, they will be soon: the summer season starts Saturday, May 23rd!
The pools, which include the Banneker Pool at 2500 Georgia Avenue NW and the Upshur Pool at 4300 Arkansas Ave NW, will first be open Friday, Saturday and Sunday from noon to 6 pm, then starting June 20th, will be open on the regular summer schedule.
For Banneker, that means Monday-Wednesday & Friday from 1 pm to 8 pm, closed Thursday, then, Saturday & Sunday noon to 6 pm. There's also morning lap stop from 8-10am on Mon, Tues, Wed & Fri.
At Upshur, the schedule is a bit different: closed Mondays, open Tuesday-Friday 1pm-8pm, and Saturday and Sunday noon to 6 pm.
The pools are free if you're a city resident, which you can prove with a DC driver's license, DC college ID, or utility or phone bill with a DC address. Here's the city's site for the pool locations and the full "aquatic facilities" site.
