Temporary Access Plan Begins May 1

The initial phases of construction have begun at Rockville Swim and Fitness Center. From May 1 to September, visitors should plan to enter from the outdoor pool’s entrance when the lobby and locker rooms will be closed for renovation.

Construction, which will affect about 14,000 square feet of the center, is expected to last about 12 months. The facility’s footprint will grow about 7,000 square feet to accommodate the larger locker rooms. Most of the work will take place over the summer months when customers can utilize the outdoor bathhouse while the indoor locker rooms are closed.

Key elements of the project include a complete renovation and expansion of the locker rooms and reconfiguring of the lobby; modernizing infrastructure and amenities; and improving Americans with Disabilities Act compliance.

The indoor pool’s locker rooms were constructed in 1968 when the center had only one swimming pool. The swim and fitness center now has two indoor and three outdoor pools, a whirlpool and fitness and exercise room, and is used by more than 300,000 people each year.
