Gaithersburg Aquatic Center Opens Deep Water Well for Swimming
The deep water well at the Gaithersburg Aquatic Center is now open for deep water recreation on select weekday evenings.
“Several patrons of the Aquatic Center asked us to consider opening the well so they could use it for recreational and therapeutic purposes,” said Aquatic Superintendent Jen Mogus. “We were happy to explore a way to work those requests into our schedule.”
Diving from boards and jumping from the sides will be prohibited during these sessions, allowing swimmers and those engaged in water exercise to enjoy the well safely. Patrons are responsible for bringing any equipment they would like to use during these open sessions.
The deep water well is available for open swim Mondays, Wednesdays and Fridays during Family Recreational Swim, 6:30 to 7:30 p.m.
During all other Family Recreational Swim times, Mogus said the well will be open for diving board use only.
The Gaithersburg Aquatic Center is owned by Montgomery County Public Schools and operated by the City of Gaithersburg after school and when school is out of session. It is located adjacent to Gaithersburg Middle School at 2 Teachers Way. The Center features six 25-yard lap lanes, two diving boards, an outdoor patio, full-size lockers, and a shallow-water “teach pool.” It is open evenings and weekends for lap and recreational swimming, and also hosts swim lessons and water exercise classes.
