As the thermometer hits triple digits today, and heat indexes are soaring to dangerous levels, many Northern Virginians are looking for a place to cool off. While staying in a nice air conditioned room is ideal, Arlingtonians may want to hit the pool. Many residents don’t know that Arlington has several public pools, including three indoor pools and one outdoor waterpark at Upton Hill Regional Park. Through August 22, the pool is open daily 11:00 am to 7:00 pm, and is staffed by licensed aquatic staff.
Fees vary from free for Under 2 years of age to $8 for an individual > 48″, or you can consider a “Bounce Pass” good at all five Northern Virginia Regional Park Authority Parks. Group rates are also available. If you’re going to hit the waterpark, remember that there are pool and slide rules for everyone’ s safety.
Stay cool, Arlington!
