Hi Everyone -
I'm trying to find an available DC Public pool near the Foggy Bottom area. I know Wilson is an option, but in this cold, I have no desire in riding out up the hill or jumping on the red line up to the Tenleytown station.
If you have any other suggestions, I would highly appreciate it! Thanks.
There really aren't any. The Y is the closest and that is on the other side of DuPont Circle. I contemplated it, but not realistic for a lunch time swim. GW used to let non students join the pool for limited hours, but not any more.
In the summer, there is a DC Rec pool at 25th & R - good for an extra swim, but I don't think the lap lane is quite 25 yds.
Again, not totally helpful for the winter but Francis (an outdoor pool around West End) is pretty good for laps during the summer.
There is Marie Reed indoor pool on 18th and Kalorama, in Adams Morgan. The hours are a bit quarky though, and I think they are closed on week-end.
