From DPR:

“Today, the DC Department of Parks and Recreation (DPR) released the 2016 outdoor pools summer schedule. Changes to the schedule include:

all outdoor pools will open at 11 am, 2 hours earlier than in the past;

Ed. Note: Monday – Friday will be 11 am. The weekend hours will remain the same. (12pm-6pm)

3 children’s pools will be closed for the season due to capital construction. Only Park View children’s pool will operate during the 2016 summer season; and
the Southwest Duck Pond (6 & I Street, SW), which is currently closed for construction, will re-open on July 4.

All outdoor pools and Park View children’s pool will open for the summer on Memorial Day weekend (May 28, 29 and 30) from 12 pm to 6 pm; and will operate on a weekends-only schedule (Saturday and Sunday) through June 12. Starting June 18, all outdoor pools will operate on their individual summer schedules.

All spray parks will open for the summer on Saturday, May 28 and will operate daily, from 10 am to 7 pm, for the entire summer season. Spray parks will close on Monday, September 5.

In addition to the schedule changes, two outdoor pools will feature brand new concession stands, located on the pool deck area. Patrons will have the opportunity to enjoy drinks and snacks purchased at the pool. The Banneker and Ridge Road outdoor pool locations will offer concession stands. Please note that the stands will accept cash or credit cards.
