If you’re hoping to get into an Alexandria pool, grab the tickets while you can.
Every Thursday, the City of Alexandria will release tickets for family outdoor pool swimming or indoor lap swimming. Alexnadria’s outdoor pools are scheduled to be open until Labor Day (Sept. 7). Each ticket is valid for a 45-minute window.
“In accordance with Phase Three guidance, family open swim is permitted with ten feet physical distance maintained between swimmers not of the same household,” the city said on its website. “For open swimming tickets July 20 through September 7, due to high demand, households may reserve one ticket per day up to a maximum of three tickets per week.”
For lap swimming, only three individuals are permitted per lane.
The tickets are only available for Alexandria residents at this time except at the Chinquapin’s Rixse Pool.
The outdoor pool ticket fees are determined by age:
- Child (0-4) with paid adult: Free
- Youth (5-17): $3
- Adult (18-59): $4
- Senior (60+): $3
Guests are requested to show up ten minutes before their ticket time to undergo a health screening. Masks are required to be worn at the facilities but cannot be worn in the pools.
Pool tickets are released each Thursday at 9 a.m. for the following week. Tickets are now available for family open swim at outdoor pools for residents and lap swim at the indoor pool for nonresidents. Visit https://t.co/KHsf2FMekR for information and to purchase tickets. pic.twitter.com/SRnxIa3xpc
