Some Outdoor Pools To Remain Open Through Oct. 4
Montgomery County Recreation announced that the summer outdoor pool season will be extended to Sunday, Oct. 4, weather permitting and some operating on an altered schedule.
While the Long Branch, Upper County and Western outdoor pools will close earlier on Sunday, Sept. 20, the Bethesda, Germantown and Martin Luther King, Jr. pools will be open until Oct. 4. The Glenmont Wheaton pool will open with a modified schedule starting Sept. 21.
Montgomery County Recreation Director Robin Riley explained that this decision was made as the pandemic “cut summer short for many of us” in order to allow residents more time to prioritize their physical and mental health.
The outdoor pools are open now to those with pool passes, and daily admission is also open to Montgomery County residents, who must show proof of residency before entering.
Those with Outdoor Summer Pool Passes will still be able to enjoy their pool time until Oct. 4, instead of the original expiration date of Sept. 7, for no additional cost.
45-minute lap swimming sessions are available at Bethesda, Martin Luther King, Jr. and Wheaton Glenmont pools in the early morning, as well as two-hour recreation swim periods.
