SteveDuring the summer months Ilda Pool offers area residents of all ages a place to cool off, exercise, socialize, or just relax. The pool features a diving board, a slide, and a wading pool for younger children. ILDA Pool is situated in a wonderful, wooded setting, with plenty of shade for hot, sunny afternoons. Nearly every weekend the pool sponsors events such as Friday night socials, parties with bands, fund-raisers for local causes, and Fourth of July and Octoberfest celebrations. In the off-season, members host movie nights, bike rodeos, yard sales, community potlucks, and more.

Ilda Pool also sponsors the Ilda Clippers Swim and Dive Teams, which compete with other neighborhood teams in the Northern Virginia Swim and Dive Leagues. Children learn how to swim, perfect techniques, and have a great deal of fun. They also participate in an annual swim-a-thon that benefits the Leukemia and Lymphoma Society.

Cooling off in the neighborhood pool is a fun and convenient way to meet your neighbors, beat the heat, and keep active. Call Stephanie Donovan at 703-426-2002 for membership information, or email sd8900ilda@gmail.com.
