Cannonball! City pools now open during the week; check out their programs too


It's officially summer now, and right on time the city's public pools are now open during the week as well as the weekends. Most pools in the city are open every day but one: in our case, the Banneker Pool at 2500 Georgia Ave NW is closed every Thursday, and the Upshur Pool at 4300 Arkansas Ave NW will be closed every Monday.

Here's the hours for the pools. The pools also have some programs, like learning to swim for kids, parent and kid water aerobics, and a swimming league. Banneker also has a morning lap swim from 8am-10am. Sounds like a great opportunity for those who work from home or have kids who are off school.

Pools are free for city residents, make sure to bring a valid ID or utility bill. There's more info on what you can bring here. People who aren't DC residents can pay a small fee or get a pass for a lot of visits.
