Last summer we were able to use the community pool of a HOA that is right next to us. For this year, they said due to some change in law they would have to upgrade their facility if they let outsiders in and didn't want to do that.

Does anyone know of any pools that offer either season passes or that you can pay by the day in the Haymarket/Gainesville area?

You're going to have to go to the George Mason Aquatic center , which is like a 15 drive.

There's the Freedom Aquatic Center that the PP mentioned.

There's also the Larry Week's Community Pool in Vint Hill: Parks & Recreation

And there's the WARF in Warrenton, which is awesome and not really much more of a drive than Freedom Aquatic Center in Manassas: About the WARF

Thank you both for your responses. I knew about the Freedom Center, but didn't know about the ones in Warrenton. Larry Week's Community Pool is something we will definately consider.

I seem to remember Bridlewood community allowing outsiders to purchase season passes. Not sure if they still do but might be worth a call to the HOA.

the new federal regulations require all publically accessible pools to have wheelchair lifts installed. HOAs are currently exempt from this new law, as long as they are only open to the residents of the HOA (i.e. "private club"). Since these lifts are very expensive (and have a really long lead time to install due to demand), most HOAs are stopping the practice of allowing outsides purchase passes.

No to mention they were so. freaking. expensive! I don't remember how much exactly, but I do remember opening the letter that came in the mail about it, showing it to DH, sharing a good laugh, then trashing it.
