Montgomery County Recreation Launches New Pool Reservation System

Interested in swimming at our neighborhood pool at the Kennedy Shriver Aquatic Center? Montgomery County Recreation is launching a new pool reservation system designed to create an easier and better user experience. The new system will go live on Monday, Sept. 28 for pool reservations on Monday, Oct. 5, 2020 or later.

Montgomery County Recreation pools are currently open to Montgomery County residents and to valid pool pass holders. While reservations are not required, they are highly encouraged as pool capacity is limited due to COVID-19 restrictions.

“We heard from many customers, listened to their feedback and found a system that we believe will creates a better user experience,” said Montgomery County Recreation Director Robin Riley. “We appreciate our customers’ patience and understanding as we navigate these new waters.”

The new system will be used to make reservations at the County’s four indoor aquatic centers. Reservations will be available beginning exactly seven days in advance of the activity’s scheduled start time. For example, reservations for Monday, Oct. 5 at 2 p.m. will be available beginning on Monday, Sept. 28 at 2 p.m. Users can select from a variety of activity types including:

  • Lap Swimming: Current health guidelines allow for one person per lane. This activity requires continuous swimming.
  • Deep Water Running: Open space for exercise in deep water. Swimmer’s body must remain vertical in the water. Lap swimming is not permitted.
  • Open Rec Area: Shallow water available for general use. Lap swimming is not permitted.    
  • Rec Swim: Available for general use. Diving boards, slides and leisure pool open. Lap lanes available as first come, first serve for lap swimming only.

Reservations for indoor and outdoor swim sessions through Oct. 4 will continue to use the current reservation system.
