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.
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.
