Once summer is upon us and the pool opens, the entire club truly comes to life.
The aquatics center at Glen Echo has something to offer members of all ages. Families with younger children will love the shallow-play area with fountains and water spouts keeping the kids entertained while parents relax and work on their tans. Families with older or more adventurous children can be found playing in the diving section; working on their diving and cannonball skills. The adults with a bit of kid still left in them can also be found there. For the real grown-ups, we have an adult only “in water” lounge. It is the perfect place to relax and unwind. Finally, there are lap lanes for those trying to stay fit. The lap lanes are also used by our Barracuda swim team for practice and swim meets with other area clubs.
Throughout the summer, the pool opens for early morning swim and diving team practices as well as private lessons. The rest of the day and into the evening the pool is open for everyone’s enjoyment. The laid back atmosphere, no crowds, exceptional service staff and certified life guards make summertime at the pool one of the greatest experiences at Glen Echo.
Within the aquatic center, there is a full service bar. A special menu is available for dining pool side or under the shade and comfort of our pergola. The aquatic center is also home to a variety of social events, including DJ parties, Pool-Side Karaoke, and Dive-in Movie Nights. The pool season ends with the highly anticipated Lady Open & Doggie Dip Buffet; a day of golf and swimming with man’s best friend.
