Barry Farm Aquatic Center

Barry Farm Aquatic Center

The Barry Farm Aquatic Center, formerly an outdoor pool, underwent a complete conversion in 2014 and it is now an indoor facility.  

The new indoor Barry Farm pool opened to the public in January 2015 and boasts the only indoor water slide in Ward 8.  Located in Anacostia, this indoor aquatics center offers a six (6) lane, 25-yard pool.
