Washington, DC – The DC Department of Parks and Recreation (DPR) announced today that it will open all its outdoor aquatic features (18 outdoor pools, 19 spray parks and four children's pools) to kick off the 2014 summer season, starting Saturday, May 24 at 12 pm, leading into the Memorial Day holiday.  

The District’s outdoor pools will remain open for the entire Memorial Day weekend - Saturday, Sunday and Monday - from 12 pm to 6 pm. DC's spray parks will also be open for the entire holiday weekend from 10 am to 7 pm. District residents with acceptable proof of residency can swim free of charge at all DPR pools; non-District residents must pay a fee.

DPR's administrative offices, indoor aquatic facilities, recreation and community centers will be closed Monday, May 26 for the Memorial Day holiday, with the exception of the Wilson Aquatic Center (4551 Fort Dr., NW), which will operate from 9 am to 5 pm. All permitted events will take place as scheduled and all fields will be open.

Immediately following the Memorial Day weekend, all outdoor aquatic facilities will operate on weekends only (Saturday and Sunday), from 12 pm to 6 pm, until Sunday, June 22. Starting the next day, on Monday, June 23, all outdoor pools and spray parks will begin their regular summer schedules. All outdoor pools are open six days a week, and are closed one day for cleaning and maintenance. Spray parks will operate seven days a week.
