Ed. Note: Read this post about what’s in the water currently at Rock Creek.

“Dear PoPville,

I have a question that you guys dealt with 8 years ago, but may be worth a revisit in these circumstance: swimming/wading in rock creek park. My family and I have been trying to go to close by beaches in MD (but they are operating on limited capacity and it’s almost impossible to get in: we tried mayo and north beach and Beverly triton last Sunday, to no avail.) Most VA beaches are closed. Pools are closed. I’m getting desperate! I have a 3 year old who loves wading/swimming. Any options. Is RCP really that dangerous to dip your feet in? Any other reader recs?”
