About the ComplexThis aquatics facility is dedicated in the memory of Theresa Douglas Banks (1905-1972). Ms. Banks was a committed educator, community activist and dedicated welfare worker. She was the first female member of the Glenarden Town Council and served as Town Clerk for many years. She was also a teacher at Highland Park Elementary School. Ms. Banks helped to establish a branch of the county's public library system in Fairmont Heights. She was inducted into the Prince George's County Women's Hall of Fame in 1988. A portrait of her hangs near the entrance to the pool.
A year-round indoor pool, Theresa Banks Memorial Aquatics Center is accessed through the adjacent Glenarden Community Center. Most recently, it was renovated in 2012. This facility's amenities include 20-yard lap lanes, a spa/hot tub, an outdoor patio area with Funbrellas and shower/changing facilities with lockers.
