IM Backstroke swimmer/Credit: Leslie SogandaresReston Association’s outdoor pools turn to the late-summer schedule beginning Monday.

These pools will be closing for the season at the end of the day Sunday: Autumnwood, Golf Course Island, Hunters Woods, Newbridge, Shadowood, Tall Oaks and Uplands.

Still open: Dogwood, Glade, Lake Audubon (weekends only), Lake Newport, Lake Thoreau, Ridge Heights, North Shore and North Hills. For exact hours, visit RA’s website.

On Labor Day (Monday, Sept.7), the still-open pools will operate on a weekend schedule.

After Labor, Day only heated pools at Ridge Heights and North Shore will be open. The two will remain on a shortened schedule (3 p.m. to 7 p.m. weekdays; 11 a.m. to 7 p.m. weekends) through Sept. 27.

    Seems very silly to close neighborhood pools two or three weeks before school starts. Besides “saving money”, what’s the rationale behind this decision?

      Fewer RA maintained properties in which people urinate, defecate and flatulate, maybe?

        As usual your comment isn’t even remotely funny. But I bet you laugh out loud every time you came back to reread it since posting it yesterday.

          Tough crowd in the house tonight.

    I think its partially a staffing issue. Most of the managers and lifeguards are college students who leave to go back to school around this time.
