Anacostia Pool and Recreation Center

The Anacostia Pool and Recreation Center provides an outdoor swimming pool along the banks of the Anacostia River and offers swimming lessons, water aerobics and other activities for residents during the summer.

The pool is operated by the DC Department of Parks and Recreation (DPR) and opens every year on Memorial Day weekend.

Please note, a valid, government-issued photo ID (driver's/non-driver's license or passport) is required to enter all DPR aquatic facilities.
