The Lakes Community Center Pool, located at 44078 Cheltenham Circle, is an Olympic sized, lighted pool with a diving board.  There is also a smaller "baby pool" area that allows for our younger residents to enjoy the water as well.  Be sure to take advantage of this amenity by soaking up the sun, relaxing poolside and enjoying an afternoon of leisure in the Village.
The Mills Community Center Pool, located at 43895 Grottoes Drive, is affectionately nicknamed by our younger residents as the "bucket pool" for its many amenities that cater to our young water lovers. Kids of all ages regularly visit this very popular summertime destination and on most summer days, the Mills pool can boast as one of the busiest spots in the Village.
The Woods Community Center Pool, located at 44020 Louisa Drive, is tucked in to a quiet nook here in the Village, where residents can spend many leisurely hours basking in the summer sun. Many of our residents find it a quiet respite in the midst of their hectic days.
The Sports Pavilion, located at 20585 Ashburn Village Blvd, hosts both indoor and outdoor 25 meter pools. During the summer swim team season, the Aqua Jets host practices in the late afternoon and evening hours in the outdoor pool. 
The Lifeguards and Manager-on-Duty (MOD) have the authority to enforce the rules listed here to ensure the health, safety, and comfort of all participants.

Participants not abiding by these rules may be asked to leave the facility and may also be subject to suspension or termination of facility privileges.
