Teams That Use This Facility
We have no web links or contact information for teams that train at this facility.

The facility, built in 1936, was closed for almost eight months for a major refurbishment and reopened in March, 2003.
The pool is much wider than it is long, one swimmer estimated it at 75 meters, but lap swimming is always done width-wise, so that's the principal pool dimension shown for the listing. We don't know the actual width or number of 20 yard lanes.
The Haywood Area Recreation and Park District also has a Facebook page.

Facility Reviews
Post-renovation, the pool is MUCH better; it's still only 20 yards long, but there are numerous lanes.
There are no lane markers. The wake caused by the other swimmers makes it feel like you're swimming in the ocean. [September, 2013]
Only 20 yards, but LOTS of lanes. it's also the only pool in the area that is consistent with hours and management. The regulars are nice folks and the etiquette is good (though there's no lane sharing, so the etiquette hasn't really been tested). Clean and decently priced. Quirky, but recommended. [June, 2014]
