–Western County Outdoor Pool, 301.349.2217, 20151 Fisher Avenue, Poolesville.

As the summer swim season gets underway, residents are reminded to know the safety rules posted at the pools.

Recreation staffers are reminding parents that children are at high risk for water-related accidents and it is important that they are closely supervised at all times while in and around the pool.

Because safety is the priority for the county’s Recreation Department programs, it may be necessary to temporarily halt admission to pools when capacity is reached. Swimmers will be admitted as soon as space becomes available.

For information about pool amenities or hours of operation at all swimming pools, visit the
Department of Recreation’s website.
