A Lot of Confusion Over Possible Future Swimming Pool Fees – Fear Not

I’ve been getting tons of emails like this one:

DPR to start charging all residents to use pools. Aw man, this is some BS. They will start charging residents $5/day to use the pool starting after Labor Day 2016.”

This has also blown up on a few listservs as well. On Friday I emailed with DPR and was told:

“We have no plans to charge DC residents for swimming pools. Those fees have been historically waived for DC residents.”

On twitter DPR also confirmed to concerned residents:

“It shows what we can charge. Pools and fitness centers remain free to DC residents. Apologies for confusion.”
