During the preseason, May 28 – June 17, outdoor pool hours are 11 a.m. – 2 p.m. and 3 – 6 p.m. on weekends and Memorial Day.
During the summer season, June 18 – Aug. 14, outdoor pool hours are 1 – 4 p.m. and 5 – 8 p.m. on weekdays, and noon – 3 p.m. and 4 – 7 p.m. on weekends. The Upper County Pool is closed on Fridays during the summer season. For more information about pool hours, visit the Montgomery County Recreation website.
Daily admission is $5 for County residents (ages 1-17), $7 for adults, and $6 for seniors (age 55 and over). Admission for pool visitors who live outside the County is $15.
As the summer swim season gets underway, residents are encouraged to become familiar with the safety rules posted at the pools. Children are most at risk for water-related accidents and it is important they are always closely supervised while in and around the pool. Because safety is a priority, it may be necessary to temporarily halt admission to pools when capacity is reached. Additional swimmers will be admitted as soon as space becomes available.
Pool visitors are allowed to bring food and drink to the pools as long as they follow the rules/regulations, including no glass, no barbeques, no alcohol, and that all coolers will be inspected.
