Greenbelt in Prince George's County, Maryland — The American Northeast (Mid-Atlantic)
Greenbelt continues to offer superior recreational amenities. The City of Greenbelt reconsructed the outdoor pool entirely in 1988. The new pool features a graduated entrance area for small children, and a toadstool and slide for older children. The current Aquatic and Fitness Center opened in September 1991 with an olympic-size pool. The new building with the current entry way is attached to the right of the original bathhouse, which the city remodeled in 1993 to house a fitness center. Elements of the original bathhouse remain: Notice the three circular windows above the original entry way.
