Hi!

I read over the first weekly update which included convenient pool locations. I was a little dismayed to see recommended pools located only in Arlington. I was hoping someone could recommend a location convenient to the Vienna area. I know Arlington isn't that far, but the hours listed aren't as convenient to my work schedule. If anyone has any input that would be great!

Thanks,

Candace

Hi Candace,

Here's a link to a few of the Fairfax Co Rec Center pools-

http://www.fairfaxcounty.gov/parks/wp-recenter.htm

I live in fairfax county and I know that some of the rec center pools aren't listed there (herndon/reston) so check your local community center and gyms in your area as well.

Montgomery County

Link to the DC Area aquatic websites-

Hope that helps!

Pam- thanks so much for the link and your input.

At the risk of sounding cheap, I really don't want to pay $60-90 a month for a gym membership just to swim.

Are there additional costs (ie monthly? per swim?) to use the pools listed for Arlington?

Check the websites or call the pool if you don't find the info you need online. Most pools let you pay per visit.

try Oakmarr, Spring Hill or Providence, Vienna is close to all of them. They're all part of the Fairfax County Park Authority, so if you're a county resident it's $6.85 for entry or you can get a membership.

Oakmarr is right on the edge of Fairfax City and Vienna off of Jermantown Road and 123... decent facility and not terribly crowded.
