Providence RECenter – Aquatics
County Park Authority RECenter pools have something for everybody! Our comprehensive programs promote safety, skill development, fitness, social interaction and fun.
Providence RECenter has a 25-yard X 25-meter heated indoor pool with wading area, springboard, outdoor sundeck, 2 spas, saunas, locker rooms, family changing room, and bleacher seating. There is a wheelchair ramp built in to the main pool.
Various user groups share pool space. Nationally ranked swimming teams rent space for practice and meets. FCPA and Fairfax County Public Schools share the commitment for hosting the high school swim and dive teams for practice and meets November through February.
The Park Authority strives to maintain a standard of at least three lap lanes available to the public whenever the pool is open. Please check the pool calendar for specific daily pool hours. The calendar will also indicate the rare instances that availability falls below the three lane standard. Shallow (3 1/2 ft.) play space is available every day.
