Facility Reviews
I’ve been swimming here since I was a kid. The pool has a good amount of natural light, which I like. The life guards are professional. I would recommend swimming here, though some regulars come in to do other movements during lap swim, like rehab aninjury or whatnot that tend to crowd things up. Of course, you can’t rule out the all-too-familiar ignoramus of lap etiquette either. All things considered it’s sometimes hit or miss but, for the most part, you will get your laps done.
