For more than 70 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 membership types appeal to adult members with and without children, and provide members with unlimited use of the pool from Memorial Day through mid-September. 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, group swimming lessons are offered by the lifeguards and private swimming lessons are offered by the swim team coaches. Lessons cater to beginner through more advanced swimmers.
The elevated gazebo overlooking the pool has picnic tables and ceiling fans. Members can reserve the gazebo online for birthday parties and other special occasions. Please note that gazebo reservations can be made online only.
Our grounds also include women’s and men’s 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 also feature tetherball and table tennis. Just prior to closing the pool for the season, we host a “doggy swim” where members can bring their canine companions for a dogs-only swim.
You can view the pool’s normal operating hours here. In the event that the pool is closed due to swim or dive meets, special activities, or adverse weather, members have reciprocal rights to use the Country Club Hills, Mosby Woods, or Villa Aquatic Club pools (but we urge you to call the pools in advance to ensure they are open). You can stay abreast of special events at the Fairfax Swimming Pool by using the events calendar.
