“Your blog is great! Quick question: do you know how it works to bring a non-dc resident (visiting family member) to Rosedale pool? If i have my license is that enough to bring my sis-in-law and two kids?”

CHK answers:

Yes, non-residents can use D.C. pools with a swim pass for a fee ($3 for under age 6; $4 for ages 6-17; $7 for adults; $4 for seniors). There are also 30-day and 90-day swim pass options. Go to the DPR Registration Portal to buy online. Print the receipts and bring to the pool. You can also buy swim passes at select recreational locations, including Rumsey Pool at Eastern Market.
