The summer heat wave has resulted in more than sweat and increased Pepco bills — the city is extending the operating hours of all DC public swimming pools, including the Marie H. Reed indoor pool in Adams Morgan, beginning Monday, July 9. The Francis Pool at 25th and N Streets NW is also getting extended hours and will stay open until 9:30 pm.

News from DC’s Dupont, Logan and U Street neighborhoods.

For summer operations only, the Reed Pool will expand its morning lap swim to the following: Mondays, Tuesdays, Wednesdays and Thursdays from 6 until 10 am. This morning lap schedule will be in effect up to August 23rd, after which date the schedule will revert back to its previous morning lap swim schedule. The pool will also be adding an hour in the evening on Mondays through Fridays. Lap swimming hours will run until 8 pm, instead of 7 pm.

    Please note that pool staff are not implementing this across the board. I went to Francis pool last Thursday and they closed at their normal time, 8 pm. They did stay open late on Friday. They said decisions are made on a day-to-day basis so call ahead. Info on the DPR (or other) websites has no correlation to what they will do at the actual pool. Call ahead!
