2023 Pool Season Dates and Hours


The Braddock Heights Swimming Pool will be open in 2023 from:

Saturday, May 27th (Memorial Day Weekend) to Monday, September 4th (Labor Day Weekend) 


Note: Our hours of operation are listed below. In mid summer, the pool closes later than other times.

Note: Senior swim hours will not continue for the 2023 pool season.

The Pool Committee voted on February 7, 2023 to discontinue senior swim in 2023. Senior swim began in 2020 to protect the health of older members during the pandemic. However, the federal government is ending COVID-19 emergency measures on May 11. It is the right time for the pool to cease special provisions as well.

The Committee discussed senior swim at length looking at data from senior swim times last summer. Besides the end of the pandemic, other considerations included the following:

— Senior swim was underutilized.
— The 11:00-12:00 hour is a favored time for other members, although it remains a relatively uncrowded time.
— With 15 minutes of adult swim per hour and lap lanes, there is ample time and space for seniors to swim safely.

We realize special arrangements like senior swim time are great for some members. But the Pool’s large and diverse membership has a wide range of special needs. Although we’d love to accommodate all, it’s impractical for our small volunteer pool committee to manage.  Our data shows that the best time to avoid crowds, if this is your goal, is the first and last hour of pool hours for the day.
