Forest Knolls Pool is a Members Only, community owned and operated pool tucked away in the forest on the edge of Northwest Branch Park off Colesville Rd and University Blvd in Silver Spring, MD.  The 25 meter pool features high and low diving boards, a toddler pool, a basketball court, volleyball court and large shade trees—the perfect setting for a relaxing swim or picnic during the summer season.

This welcoming, safe and family-friendly environment is home to the Seahawks swim team and the scene of birthdays, live music and other community events.

Visit this site regularly for the latest information about the many things Forest Knolls Pool has to offer, including a wide range of entertainment, including Memorial Day, Fourth of July and Labor Day events,  and other special events we organize during the season. We hope to see you at the pool this summer.

Social Events: Please check the calendar for events. We will update it with new information throughout the season.

Pool Management and Staff: The Forest Knolls Pool Board retains a professional management company (Lighthouse Pools, Inc.) to employ, train and supervise the staff to manage pool operations, daily administration, and safety requirements. Staff members, most of whom are part of the community, share our commitment to providing outstanding service and ensuring the overall safety of our members. If you or someone you know might be interested in seeking a pool staff position, please contact Bruce Schaper at [email protected].

We accept reservations from 12:30-3:30pm or 4-7pm. If you are interested in a different time slot, just let us know and we will try to accommodate your request. Non-members in attendance must register at front desk and regular guest fees and policies apply, including a water safety test. There is a $25 reservation fee payable by check, cash, or using your membership account (must be paid on or before the day of the reservation). Please let us know if you plan to have more than 15 non-member guests. Members can check pavilion availability in their membership account – schedule information is on the main page when you sign in and you can choose to look at a specific date.

Volunteers: Forest Knolls Pool is a member-owned pool and depends on volunteers to upkeep the pool and its grounds. Substantial volunteer effort is required all year around to avoid added maintenance costs and operating expenses. There are many ways members can contribute to upkeep and beautification of the pool property or otherwise help to keeping the pool running. Please reach out to the board to volunteer!
