Editorial Review

The 25-yard, eight-lane pool offers a variety of special features, including a diving area with a five-meter platform and one- and three-meter boards, a separate teaching pool and a hydrotherapy pool. The facility is completely accessible to people with physical challenges.

Programs at the facility include lap and recreational swimming and aquatic exercise programs. Swimming classes for adults and children are available in the fall, spring and winter. Other classes include kayaking, lifeguard training, water safety and CPR. Private scuba classes are also available.

Competitive teams that work out at the facility include the Montgomery Dive Club, the Rockville-Montgomery Swim Club and the Montgomery Masters "Ancient Mariners."

Montgomery County's outdoor pools close when the air temperature drops below 70 degrees and during rain storms.
