(Updated at 12:25 p.m.) Summer may be fading in the rearview mirror, but there are still plenty of public pools open for anyone looking to hit the water around Arlington.
The county doesn’t operate any indoor pools on its own — something that will change when the Long Bridge Park aquatics center opens a few years from now — but three pools in Arlington high schools are open for public use.
Washington-Lee, Wakefield and Yorktown high schools all have pools open to swimmers of all ages. Anyone interested in swimming can buy a pass for a single session, or purchase monthly passes. Full information is available on the school system’s website.
Those pools are open seven days a week, though each one has slightly different hours of operation. (The 2018-2019 schedule is pictured here.)
As for the county’s private, community pools, all five of those have closed for the season. In case you’re already dreaming of next summer, those include:
- Arlington Forest Club
- Columbus Club of Arlington
- Dominion Hills Area Recreation Association
- Donaldson Run Recreation Association
- Overlee Community Association
