County Pools Open with Ribbon Cutting at Renovated Western County Outdoor Pool
The Departments of Recreation and General Services celebrated the opening of the newly renovated Western County Outdoor Pool with a ribbon cutting ceremony on Saturday.
The pool, located at 20151 Fisher Avenue in Poolesville, has been renovated. Renovations to the pool began in September 2015 and included the construction of a new 3,160- square foot “spray” ground and renovations of the bathhouse, snack bar and filter room. In addition, upgrades to the site and buildings, including the parking lot and pool grounds, improved accessibility. Accessible upgrades at the site include drinking fountains, pool deck showers, restrooms and shower facilities, and an accessible route to a shade structure. Other system upgrades include new light fixtures and in-pool lighting, a new dive board and a new leisure pool slide. Renovation costs were approximately $3.85 million.
