Summer Swim in Loudoun County


It is mid July and that means heat, humidity and plenty of sunshine throughout Northern Virginia including Loudoun County. School is out, unless you are at a year round school like Middleburg Charter, and the kids need to burn some energy. Thankfully, there are swimming pools in most communities – Lucketts, Lansdowne, River Creek, Broadlands and Countryside have great options.



If your home isn’t a part of an HOA or your subdivision doesn’t offer this amenity, you’re in luck – Loudoun County has multiple indoor and outdoor public pool options.

If you are in Leesburg, you can swim, slide and float lazily on the 600 foot lazy river at the AV Symington Aquatic Center.  This park is designed for children of all ages and is open to all Loudoun County residents – bring your id as Town of Leesburg residents enjoy special rates.

Head East into Sterling and stop off at Algonkian Park. Nestled in this beautiful park, you will find Volcano Island. Relax, there is no lava! However, there are plenty of slides, an interactive water playground and splash pad to entertain toddlers and high schoolers alike.  Plenty of shade, a snack bar and mini golf make this the perfect destination on a hot day.

In the western part of the county is the pretty town of Purcellville.  Here you will find Franklin Park. With plenty of room to splash around, a special slide for toddlers and a flume slide for big kids, an afternoon of fun is guaranteed.

If you prefer to stay out of the heat…Ida Lee Recreation Center in Leesburg and Claude Moore Park in Sterling each offer indoor public pools with slides, lap lanes and shallow areas for kids.


Grab your towel, sunscreen and goggles and head over to one of these pools! Burn some energy and get some vitamin D, too. When you return home, if you find it isn’t as cool as it should be, give the team at Climatic a call. We will get your AC in working order!
