·        Germantown Outdoor Pool, 301-601-1690, 18905 Kingsview Road;

With weekend weather predictions in the 80 to 90 degree range, officials are expecting larger than usual crowds at area pools.  If capacity is reached during peak times, it may be necessary temporarily to halt admission to pools.  Swimmers will be admitted as soon as space becomes available.  Maintaining public safety is the priority at all of the County’s pools.
