The Piney Branch Public Pool will reopen after 30 months of being closed due to the pandemic, according to an email from Ken Flemmer of Adventist Community Services of Greater Washington.
The organization manages the 25-meter, six-lane pool in conjunction with the county’s Recreation Department.

The pool, which features lanes at a depth of 3.5 to 10.5 meters, plus two slides and backstroke flags, is open to recreational swimmers, for swim lessons, seniors, scuba lessons, kayak clubs, water fitness and high school swim teams.
