Anyone know when Haines Point pool will open this spring?
They have the fancy new heater in there, so I assume the pool will open earlier than Memorial Day....
As with last year, and with extending the pool's hours into the fall for the first time, it may depend on how much we contact the city and urge it to open the pool up early.
Here's some of the contact info from last year's effort:
Can you suggest ways to improve DC government services:
DPR Aquatics: (202) 671-1289
Media Contact Only: John A. Stokes, (202) 673-2195
972 Ohio Dr., SW (202) 727-6523 Mon - Fri: 1 pm - 8 pm; Sat - Sun: 12 pm - 6 pm (closed-Wednesdays) May 23
Says opening May 23rd no special posting for Haines Point Pool otherwise.
i think the bigger problem is them finding lifeguards to sit for the hours
they had mostly college and high schoolers doing this so if they are in school i don't see the pool opening early.
when does dc public schools end? and when do most colleges end for the year? i think the pool will probably open around the same time.
just a guess based on last fall's hours.
Most colleges/universities let the students out by the 3rd week of May and certainly out by Memorial Day weekend. The DC Public School go to school until around the 16-17th of June. At least that's what I recall my friend telling me.
