DFMWR Pool Complex


We have four pools that include a 25-meter lap pool, a 50-yard lap pool, a wading pool, and a figure-8 pool. The figure-8 has a diving board and 2 slides. Our Fort Myer Swim Team utilizes the 25-meter pool for their practice and training.

We also offer swim lessons during the summer months. Spaces fill up fast so please make your reservation early in the season.

Watch a movie under the stars at our “dive-in movies.”  This is one of our most popular events!
