Even though we’ve had some unseasonably cool temperatures lately, it’s that time of year again—pool season is upon us! And what better way to beat cooler air temperatures than getting a swim in a heated pool? Stedwick Pool, 10401 Stedwick Road, will open on Saturday, May 20, before the other Village pools open. Stedwick will be open weekdays from 3:30 to 7:30 p.m. (closed Thursday) and on the weekend from 2 to 7:30 p.m.
On Saturday, May 27 at noon, one of the most anticipated events in Montgomery Village all year takes place—the opening of MVF-owned pools and what many see as the beginning of summer in the Village.
Lake Marion, North Creek, Stedwick and Whetstone pools will be open Memorial Day weekend. The newly renovated Apple Ridge Pool is scheduled to be open on Memorial Day weekend as well, and will be open only on weekends until Saturday, June 17. Watkins Mill and Hurley Park pools will also open for the season on Saturday, June 17. Beginning on Saturday, June 17, each of the seven Montgomery Village Foundation pools will be open six days a week and closed one day, on a rotating basis, for maintenance. Each has weekend and weekday hours; the 2017 Pool Schedule is available online at www.montgomeryvillage.com, and is posted at each of the pools.
Lake Marion, Stedwick and Apple Ridge pools will remain open through Labor Day, Monday, Sept. 4; the other four pools will close earlier in August—check your pool schedule for details. Stedwick Pool will remain open through Sunday, Sept. 24—the advantage of the heated pool is opening earlier and staying open later each season.
Residents are reminded to get their activity cards early in order to enjoy the pools. The MVF Office, 10120 Apple Ridge Road, is open until 7 p.m. on Thursday evenings and from 9:30 a.m. to 12:30 p.m. on Saturdays through July 8. Get your cards or updated stickers and enjoy the pools this season!
