Pool Is Open!

VOLUNTEERS NEEDED at Check In/Check Out Table – Sign-Up Below! 

We appreciate everyone coming together to support the pool and our wonderful community.  We are looking for a few volunteers who can help check people in and out. We are looking for adults to check people in – and middle or high school student(s) for the check out desk. If your student needs SSL hours, the check-out desk is a great opportunity for them to get started!

(Saturday, June 27) Due to a small fire at the front desk, the pool opening today is delayed. We believe the computer at the front desk short circuited. The fire department is on site cleaning it up. No one was injured, we just need time to clean it up and get set up for entry. The gates will be closed until 1:30pm. We apologize for the inconvenience.

If you would like to call and find out if the pool is reopened – please call or text Laura Reese 301.580.1992

If you are interested in joining Mill Creek Towne pool this year and would like to set up a time to tour the pool – please contact 301-685-0795.

(June 21, 2020) Thank you to all who attended the General Membership meeting in person and via Zoom. It was great to be back at the pool!  We are thrilled to announce Mill Creek Towne pool will open beginning Saturday June 27!

To start, the pool hours will be:*
Friday, Saturday, Sunday: 12pm -8pm
Wednesday & Thursday:  1pm – 6pm
Monday & Tuesday – Closed
*Pending final sign-off with Georgetown Aquatics, our pool management company. The open hours may expand if more members join and funds increase.

Important Note: For now, the baby pool will be closed per the Montgomery County Department of Health & Human Services Guidelines.  The gate to the baby pool will be locked.

According to the Montgomery County Guidelines, we can accommodate 165 patrons within the gates, but with our limited budget and staff we are only allowed 75 at this time so that we can keep the limit to 50 swimmers in the water.

At this time, we will require advanced sign up for holidays but not general pool time.  If the attendance rises above our occupancy restrictions, a system may need to be set up.
Online reservations will need to be made for use of the lap lanes. Details to follow.
