Facility Reviews
The water is comfortable. The staff is nice. There are always lanes available to do laps. On the other hand: The lockers and showers should be cleaned more often. The floor is always dirty, bring your flip flops.
The lanes are congested and the staff do little to help manage the lanes. The slowest swimmer in the lane sets the pace. Swimmers attending weekend swims generally manage the lanes better than those who choose to swim lengths on Tuesday and Thursday evenings.
