Kent Gardens Recreation Club is a lovely tree-covered community pool offering swim and dive teams that compete in the Northern Virginia Swimming League (NVSL). The club also offers swimming lessons. The idea for KGRC was hatched in the springtime of 1956 and the club was established and opened in 1957. KGRC is a member supported non-profit organization, managed by an elected Board of Directors.

KGRC is proud of our friendly and community-oriented membership. The club sponsors a number of social activities throughout the season in addition to providing swim and dive teams to the McLean community.
