Notes
The pool usually has four lanes for swimmers of slow, "getting faster" and two fast lanes.
Facility Reviews
Lane discipline is enforced, but crawl is not enforced in the fast lane.
Rating: 6 on a scale of 10. Crowded, many breaststrokers in the freestyle lane, making it hard to swim hard.
Nice facilities, but at 29ºC. (84ºF.), it's too hot for training.
Nice and clean. Not crowded at 8 AM. Two lanes with lane lines, the rest, a free-for-all. Water too warm; probably 86ºF (30ºC).
Busy, especially evenings. Staff laissez-faire.
Not too warm: ~82º F (28ºC). Very crowded at 6 PM on a Monday, but bright, clean, and good for a workout.
The change rooms have been recently renovated; they are pleasant but there are not enough benches, so they get very crowded. Lane discipline has gone downhill. There a lot of very slow swimmers in the fast lane - and aggressive with it! It's getting hotter all the time - 30ºC. This pool used to be a pleasure but is now very disappointing. [June, 2013]
Swam at 8:30 a.m. on a weekday; the crowd was modest and lane speed was being followed by all. Medium seemed to mean "okay for breast stroke" and I didn't encounter any breaststrokers in the fast lane. Agree on the locker room comment -- much improved. [May, 2014]
