Facility Reviews
In summer, the only good time to swim laps is 5 - 9 A.M. After that, the pool is overcrowded and dirty. The lanes may be set up in the 25m direction in the early morning, but are usually set for 25y laps. The A.M. lap swimmers and staff are super.
I haven't had a problem getting a lane for laps. The 2nd pool is located at some distance from the main building, making it uncomfortable to get to during cold or inclement weather, but this Y has one of the most extensive fitness centers in the area.
