It can't hurt to ask the Parks Dept to open the 50-meter outdoor HP pool a week or so early. I think it's slated for the usual Mem Day weekend opening. They've opened it early before, and have kept it open into the fall as well, partly due to the request of swimmers. The weather's certainly good now for swimming outdoors.

If you have a moment to write a polite 2-3 sentence request, the contact info is:

Done.

Speaking of, does anyone know which masters program (if any?) swims at Hains Point in the early weekday mornings? I'd love to get in on that action but from my googling, all I could find is that DC Masters used to, but their site hasn't been updated since 2010. http://www.dcmasters.org/

Looking at the DPR website the pools are free to DC Residents and to those with a Military ID.. that is great.. just in case no one knew.

Katie -
Not sure how up to date this list is, but it shows a few masters practice times at HP.
