The View from South of the Potomac River: January 2012

Are Your Resolutions on the Fence ~ Time to Take the Plunge!

Being 22 days into the New Year, with a layer of ice coating lawns across Arlington County, the opportunity to work on that resolution to get/stay in shape may seem a bit far fetched.  Swimming is a great way to get your physical activity in, but with freezing temparutures who other than a polar bear would want to take the plunge now?

Well, it's time to put your excuses aside as the opening of the brand new Yorktown Aquatic Center on January 15th in North Arlington makes this exercise option available to all Arlington residents.  The new state of the art facility features an 8 lane x 25 yard competition pool with adjacent diving well and separate instructional pool, as well as seating for 175 spectators.  The school swimming instructional program uses the pool during the school days, but the pool are open to the community year round during early morning, mid-day, evening hours and weekends.

Dive In to the Arlington Real Estate market 

The pool is located at 5200 Yorktown Blvd at Yorktown High School and can be accessed through entrance #3.  For information on the pool and schedules, you can use the link below or call 703-228-8754.
