For more information about pool hours, visit the Montgomery County Recreation website.

Daily admission is $5 for County residents (ages 1-17), $7 for adults and $6 for seniors (age 55 and over). Admission for pool visitors who live outside the County is $15.

Safety rules are posted at the pools. Children are most at risk for water-related accidents and it is important they are always closely supervised while in and around the pool. Because safety is a priority, it may be necessary to temporarily halt admission to pools when capacity is reached. Additional swimmers will be admitted as soon as space becomes available.

Early admission and reserved ticketing are new this year for the MLK Outdoor Pool on July 4. All outdoor pools will open at noon on July 4 for County residents only. Non-County residents will be admitted beginning at 1 p.m. on July 4. Montgomery County residents are also now able to purchase pre-sale tickets to the MLK Outdoor Pool to reserve their entry to the pool on July 4.

Pool visitors are allowed to bring food and drink to the pools. For information about pool passes, amenities and hours of operation at all swimming pools, visit the Montgomery County Recreation website.
