Great Mills Swimming pool to remain closed

From St. Mary’s County Recreation and Parks


Great Mills Swimming Pool Update: The pool’s water heater experienced a failure on December 24th. Staff identified key parts that are needed for repair and the parts were ordered. These parts had to be specially made which has created the delay. We have received some parts, but are still waiting on one that should arrive by January 17.

Our priority will be to immediately begin repairs once it is received. Staff will work to complete the repair and then we anticipate at least 3 days for the heater to bring the pool’s water temperature back to an acceptable level for public use.

Updates will be provided on Facebook and our webpage as soon as we receive them. We will reopen as soon as the above actions are successful. Thank you for your patience during this time.

The Southern Maryland Chronicle is a local, small business entrusted to provide factual, unbiased reporting to the Southern Maryland Community. While we look to local businesses for advertising, we hope to keep that cost as low as possible in order to attract even the smallest of local businesses and help them get out to the public. We must also be able to pay employees(part-time and full-time), along with equipment, and website related things. We never want to make the Chronicle a “pay-wall” style news site.

To that end, we are looking to the community to offer donations. Whether it’s a one-time donation or you set up a reoccurring monthly donation. It is all appreciated. All donations at this time will be going to furthering the Chronicle through hiring individuals that have the same goals of providing fair, and unbiased news to the community. For now, donations will be going to a business PayPal account I have set-up for the Southern Maryland Chronicle, KDC Designs. All business transactions currently occur within this PayPal account. If you have any questions regarding this you can email me at

Thank you for all of your support and I hope to continue bringing Southern Maryland the best news possible for a very long time. — David M. Higgins II
