Banneker Pool

The Banneker Pool is a very popular venue and one of the most well used pool sites in the city. The large pool accommodates all ages and all levels of swimmers. In 2015, DPR added a concessions stand on the pool deck at this location. Patrons can now purchase cold beverages and snacks while visiting this location. (Please note that outside food and drink are not allowed.) 

This outdoor pool offers an X lane XX yard x XX yard pool, a children’s pool.  Register for an aquatic class.  

Please note, a valid, government-issued photo ID (driver's/non-driver's license or passport) is required to enter all DPR aquatic facilities.
