Editorial Review

This pool near Foggy Bottom attracts a mixed crowd of in-the-know young professionals, George Washington University students and children. Separate sections accommodate kids and adults (there is a deep end!). And the admission is free, making it a pool you'll return to again and again. But this is one of the citys busiest pools, so bring a chair or risk having to lay on concrete.
