    Kind of off-topic, but swimming noob here. If I go to the Hains Point pool on say, a Saturday morning for some leisurely laps, will I just be surrounding by intense swimmers and triathlon trainees who’ll be annoyed by my snail’s pace? Are there slow lanes? I’d like to get in somewhat of a workout, so don’t want to be in an open area with kids and such, but again, not a great swimmer. Would there be a lot of people at like 8am?

      There can masters swimmers/triathletes but since the pool is so big, I’ve never had a problem with crowding and I’m really, really slow. Few kids, too, since you need a car to get there and there isn’t a shallow kids’ area. Hardest part may be finding a parking spot since people will also be golfing.

      The pool hours have been 12-6 on the weekend.

      It looks like DPW has Hains Point pool listed as closed for the 2017 and 2018 seasons, with a completion date of December 2018. Major bummer.

      You could go to the Dunbar indoor pool and do all the laps you want.

    has any one else thought to change pool season to account for climate change? open earlier and close later since it’s #sodamnhot

      It would cost the city more money so, while they’d probably like to, the city will probably try to avoid getting criticized for spending additional money on pools.

      DPR relies on high school kids for a lot of their pool staffing. Hence weekend hours starting Memorial Day, and most pools won’t be open weekdays until school is out.

    Do they have lap hours during this pre-summer season? Looks like Banneker only does lap hours during the week currently.
