There was no ribbon cutting. No fanfare. Not even an official, celebratory announcement (that we could find). But over Memorial Day weekend, as DPR’s outdoor swimming pools opened for the summer, the new Hearst Pool was among them.

Apparently a lot of people had the same idea as me to try out Ward 3’s first pool! … Planning to swim some laps for the first time in a while.. I’ve had several coworkers ask if I’ve been swimming 😅🏊🏼♀️@DCDPR pic.twitter.com/t4oYxf3xDd
