If conditions in the Fort Belvoir area warrant a change to the HPCON, Aquatics patronage on Fort Belvoir will return to Active Duty and First Responders only. If or when this change occurs, we will message this via social media platforms and signage at the facility. We want to ensure the entire community that the safety of our staff and patrons are our top priority.

Pool Rules

All pools have health and safety rules that we ask everyone to understand and follow. The lifeguards are responsible for enforcing these rules in order to PREVENT accidents from occurring. We realize that during low attendance, some of the rules may not seem appropriate. However, in order to maintain consistency between the staff and pool users at our pools, the lifeguards are instructed to enforce the rules at all times.

Please read the Basic Rules (PDF) for your safety. This list is not all inclusive or legally complete and no liability is assumed for completeness.
