Banneker used to be a great pool to go to. Plenty of room to put down your towel while you jumped in. There were also lots of kids in the pool. This year in particular its filled with a bunch of yuppies who don’t even get in the pool. If you aren’t going to get in, why go to the pool? Go to the park. And, here’s a bonus, there is one nearby at 15th St. Its called Meridian Hill. The sun’s rays will still reach you there. Its frustrating and sad to see the kids standing in line waiting to get in to their community pool while there are adults just sitting/laying on the pool deck. Its hip and cool to hang out in the park too. Stop using the swimming pool as a lounge area – you are ruining it.
