Aquatics Center: Outdoor Pool
Due to unforeseen, extensive repairs to the NAS Patuxent River Outdoor Pool, the scheduled annual Memorial Day opening will be delayed. As of now, no anticipated opening date has been established. Please check back for more information which will be published when it is available. NAS Patuxent River MWR sincerely apologizes for any inconvenience and will do what we can to open the Outdoor Pool as soon as it is safe to do so.

The pool’s impressive amount of deck space makes it an ideal rental facility for private parties and other functions. The Outdoor Pool is available to rent for parties 7 days a week throughout the summer season (Memorial Day - Labor Day).
