Good news for Athletic-Minded swimmers! This aquatic center is about one mile from many of our recommended hotels. The High School, Dunbar Senior High, began sharing the pool with the neighborhood in 2015 giving travelers more lap options. The vibe is relaxed and friendly. But there are serious swimmers here especially at 6 am. 

The 25-yard pool has 8 dedicated lap-swim lanes but expect to share the lane. Check the website for the lap swim schedule or use this link to see the "day by day" lap schedule. There are locker rooms here with shower facilities.

Parking off New Jersey Ave. Nearest Metro si Mt. Vernon square - 7th/Convention Center. Bikeshare right outside.

Fee: DC residents free; others $7
