Press Releases

For Immediate Release: Monday, April 1, 2019

Montgomery County Recreation’s Martin Luther King Jr. Indoor Pool, located at 1201 Jackson Road in Silver Spring, is closing for mechanical work on Monday, May 20.

The work includes upgrading the indoor pool’s filters. The pool is scheduled to reopen in early September.

“The filters at the indoor pool have reached the end of their life cycle and must be replaced,” said Montgomery County Recreation Director Robin Riley. “While there is never a good time to close one of our facilities, this project was schedule to coincide with the summer opening of Montgomery County Recreation’s seven outdoor pools, including the MLK Outdoor Pool in an effort to minimize any inconvenience to our customers.”

During the closure, annual pool pass holders can use their passes at any of Montgomery County Recreation’s other indoor aquatic facilities and outdoor pools. Customers may also choose to temporarily suspend their pool passes during the closure.
