In an effort to continue providing Montgomery County residents with as many fitness and recreation opportunities as possible, Montgomery County Recreation has extended its summer outdoor pool season. Weather permitting, certain outdoor pools will remain open on modified schedules through Sunday, Oct. 4.

The Bethesda, Germantown and Martin Luther King, Jr. outdoor pools will remain open through Oct. 4. The Glenmont Wheaton Outdoor Pool will remain open on a modified schedule beginning Sept. 21. The Long Branch, Upper County and Western outdoor pools will close for the season on Sunday, Sept. 20.

In addition to two-hour recreational swim sessions, 45-minute early morning lap swimming sessions also are available at the Bethesda, Martin Luther King, Jr. and Wheaton Glenmont outdoor pools. Reservations may be made online up to seven days in advance. While reservations are not required, they are highly encouraged.

Outdoor pools are open to current pool pass holders. Daily admission also is available for Montgomery County residents only. Residents should be prepared to show proof of residency prior to entry into any pool.

Outdoor Summer Pool Passes, originally scheduled to expire on Sept. 7, have been extended through Oct. 4 at no cost and will continue to be accepted for admission to any outdoor pool.
