Piney Branch Pool Reopens in Takoma Park

The Piney Branch Public Pool has reopened after its most recent closure due to equipment issues, according to officials.

The pool had been closed for nearly two weeks due to a broken boiler.

“Sourcing and replacing the boiler took less time than I projected,” Ken Flemmer of Adventist Community Services of Greater Washington said in an email. “Come and enjoy, swim some laps, join a swim team, enroll for swim lessons, join an aerobics class.”

Adventist Community Services of Greater Washington manages the 25-meter, six-lane pool in conjunction with the county’s Recreation Department.

The Piney Branch Public Pool reopened last October after 30 months of being closed due to the pandemic. 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.

The pool is located inside Piney Branch Elementary School at 7510 Maple Ave., with an entrance on the side at Grant Avenue. The pool’s operating schedule and fees are available online.
