Summer

The ultimate list of pools and splash pads in Washington DC.

It’s the moment we’ve all been waiting for, Memorial Day Weekend, the opening of the public spray pads and outdoor pools in Washington DC! To celebrate, there will be a kickoff party this Friday at Banneker Pool at 4pm (all other pools will open Saturday at noon). And refer to my post on summer essentials before hitting the pool!

My goal this year is to spend more time poolside, last year my daughter was at an age where she would no longer sit in her baby float  and instead wanted to run at top speed around the edge of the pool (I still have stress dreams about it)- we did that twice and then switched spray parks exclusively. This list has you covered, no matter what your situation, with pools and splash pads.

For your viewing pleasure I’ve included a map as well as a list of the pools/pads.

Public pools are free to residents of DC, valid ID must be provided. If you don’t live in the district you may buy a summer pass, or pay daily ($3-$7) 

 Outdoor Pools

According to DPR “Outdoor pools will open for the summer on Saturday, May 27, 2017 and will operate through Memorial Day weekend (May 27, 28 and 29) from 12 pm to 6 pm; and will operate on a weekends-only schedule (Saturday and Sunday) through June 18. Starting June 19, all outdoor pools will operate on individual summer schedules.”
