PRESS RELEASE – Summer Kick Off Event

Mayor Silberberg to Kick Off Alexandria’s Summer Outdoor Swim Season

In anticipation of the rainy days giving way to summer sun, join Mayor Allison Silberberg and Advocates for Alexandria Aquatics at Old Town Pool on May 28 to kick off the 2016 summer outdoor swim season.

“This event will officially launch Alexandria’s summer outdoor swim season at Old Town Pool. Every summer thousands of Alexandrians enjoy the cool water and open spaces of Old Town Pool, and 2016 will be the best summer yet,” said Bill Rivers, Chairman of the Board, Advocates for Alexandria Aquatics.

Old Town Pool includes a 25-yard pool with a diving well. A separate training pool is available for children up to 42 inches in height. Easily accessible for disabled, the training pool has a water depth range of 1-3 feet. For added convenience, a parking lot, picnic area and a tot playground are adjacent to the pool.

With its range of accessible facilities, the Old Town Pool facility hosts kids of all ages, recreational swimmers, Masters’ swim teams, birthday parties and family events in a safe and fun manner.

“With construction about to begin to renovate the public pool at Warwick Village and the City Council’s recent vote to approve $4.5 million for the new 50-meter pool at Chinquapin Recreation Center, the passion for aquatics has never been stronger in Alexandria,” said Rivers. “The summer of 2016 will be a wonderful time to enjoy Old Town Pool, located in the heart of our great community.”
