As always, CJ residents can take a well-timed dip in Palisades Pool whether they are members of the private swim club on Seven Locks or not. Once the pool starts their summer hours on June 20 through Labor Day, Cabin John residents are admitted free of charge to the Palisade Pool on Tuesdays and Thursdays from 11:00 am to 1:00 pm.
The Cabin John Free Swim arrangement is part of the 1967 agreement between the Cabin John community and the founders of the Palisades Pool to gain neighborhood approval of the zoning variance that permitted the pool to be constructed.
Cabin Johners need to sign in at the pool and provide some proof of residency such as being listed in the CJ Community Directory, an ID with address, or mail received at a Cabin John address. Children ages 7 and under must be accompanied by a supervising adult. Children age 8-14 who will be left by themselves at the pool will be asked to satisfy the swim test by swimming one length of the pool and treading water for one minute.
