From DPR:

“Today the DC Department of Parks and Recreation (DPR) announced, due to the District’s heat wave, DPR will extend the operating hours at select pools on Thursday, July 14 and Friday, July 15, 2016. Select outdoor pools will operate from 11 am until 9 pm instead of 8 pm. Indoor pools will operate on their normal schedule.

A heat emergency is in effect for Washington, DC. Residents are urged to take precautions against the heat. While pools will be open for extended hours, DPR strongly encourages residents to seek relief in cool, indoor locations as there is an added risk from remaining outside in the heat.
