Upgrades to Glade Pool (11550 Glade Drive) officially begin today.

Planned improvements include partially replacing the concrete deck, repairing the spa jet and chipping out the main pool for tiling and coping.

In a statement, Reston Association Director of Communications and Marketing Mike Leone said that the work should wrap up by May 1 — just in time for the 2023 summer pool season.

“Nothing is changing physically at this pool. RA is doing repair work to the Glade Pool like the work done at Ridge Heights pool earlier this year,” Leone wrote.

Work will only be conduced on weekdays between 7 a.m. and 7 p.m.

Leone added that noise levels may be “moderate to loud” during the chip-out phase and will lower once the work is completed.

RA is currently working on a large-scale renovation of Lake Thoreau’s aquatics facility. A project for Shadowood Pool is in the design phase. Final conceptual and construction documents are being preparing by engineers, according to RA’s website.
