The DULANEY SWIM CLUB (DSC)
located at Margate Road and Ridgely Road (just west of Pot Springs Road)
was established around 1959. The DSC has two pools: a separate children's pool [rebuilt in 2008] with waterfalls and water sprays , and a large "T" pool with lap lanes, sliding board and two low diving boards.
In addition, the 3.6 acres of grounds include:
- children's playground
- basketball court
- horseshoe pit
- numerous tables, chairs, and umbrellas
- picnic areas with grills with lots of tall shady trees
Additionally, the DSC Snack Shack is the envy of other neighborhood pools. The Snack Shack operates 7 days a week, and provides (at reasonable prices) hot and cold sandwiches, a variety of treats (ice cream, snowballs potato chips and more) and cold beverages.
On weekends, various functions at the DSC are designed for families that include MOVIE NIGHTS, SOCIAL NIGHTS, "SCHOOL'S-OUT-PARTY". Other functions include AUCTIONS to benefit the pool, Opening Day and Closing Night Socials and other special 'event' nights. On the 4th of JULY, a full day of events takes place for all ages.
With 475 family and singles memberships, these events are always well attended.
The DSC DOLPHINS Swim Team (members under age 18) competes against various community pools six or more times each year.
Swim lessons (for a fee) are available to members.
The DSC is a non-profit, "members only" club. Members may invite occasional guests to enjoy the benefits of the Club.
