For more than 50 years, neighbors and friends have been coming to Fairfax Swimming Pool on Roberts Road in Fairfax City. Our recently renovated pool offers dedicated and demarcated lap lanes, a dedicated diving area with two springboards, a shallow area with steps and handrails, a lift to assist with entry into and out of the pool, a 3-foot-deep roped play area, and a separate, gated wading pool with a water feature and beach entry.
Our various membership levels appeal to families and adult(s)-only, and provide members with unlimited use of the pool, which is open Memorial Day through mid-September (past Labor Day). Members must abide by the pool rules.
The Fairfax Frogs Swim and Dive Teams offer children the opportunity to enjoy water sports, improve water skills and meet new friends. The swim and dive teams compete in the Northern Virginia Swimming League (and NVSL-Diving).
During the pool season, lifeguards offer group, semi-private, and private swim lessons for beginner through more advanced levels. Contact the pool office for more information on schedules and how to enroll/sign-up.
The elevated gazebo overlooking the pool has picnic tables and ceiling fans. Members can reserve the gazebo online only for birthday parties and other special occasions. Please not that gazebo reservations are not managed by the Social Committee.
Our grounds also include womens’ and mens’ locker rooms, each equipped with private changing areas, small child changing stations, showers, sinks and toilets. The pool deck offers a variety of seating and umbrellas. The pool also has a water basketball hoop. Grassy areas with tables are available for picnicking. The pool grounds have a tetherball and a small toddler play area.
You can view the pool's normal operating hours here. Swim/dive meets, special activities, or adverse weather may close the pool, but members may use the Country Club Hills or Mosby Woods pools during those occasions. Please check the events calendar for information about special activities; we urge you to call the other pools in advance to ensure they are open.
