Facility Reviews
A very, very nice facility.
This used to be a very nice facility, until non-swimmers campaigned to have the pool temperature increased from 78ºF (26ºC) to levels that are unbearable for sustained swimming, but quite nice for a leisurely community bath! Staff will not post pool temperatures. [May, 2013]
The temperature has since been stabilized to 80ºF. It's still not ideal for sustained swimming but certainly bearable compared to earlier temperatures. [November, 2013]
