DC Pools

I am a native Washingtonian – born at Howard University Hospital, raised on Van Ness Street… And somehow for all these years it escaped my attention that DC has free public pools.

We have free museums/zoo, free public pools, free tennis courts, free parks, free academic/policy lectures, free concerts, free food (at so many events around town!!)… It would only make sense that we also have free pools. For 24 years, I was blissfully ignorant of these free pools. But no longer.

Don’t expect these to pools to be country club style. Remember, just like DC public schools, these are overseen by the geniuses in the DC government. But still – they’re (relatively) nearby, easy to get to, and give you a convenient chance to have fun in the sun – the most important thing to do in the summer!!

Here’s more info.
I recommend the Volta pool!!
