pretty nice swimming pool, small collection of exercise equipment. but there are four pools! one Maine lap pool which is the standard 25 yards of most places. and then a short dive well with two or three tall diving boards. that pool can be used for short short therapy or laps when there are no divers. then there is a therapy pool which is like a warm bubbly jacuzzi but it is quite large for that kind of thing! and then a kids spray pool which is really fun for young kids 2345. probably gets a little boring for older kids. the most impressive thing is that they made a huge effort and stayed open during the pandemic. they set up a system where you reserve a single or a double lane with rules to keep people safe. relatively safe. at first the slots were like a luxurious 85 minutes long now gone down to 55 minutes. the point is when you reserve a lane it is yours and that is really excellent. I have to give it to all the stuff in their hard work. the cleaning is a little silly which has been proven to not be important. the most important thing of course is air exposure and they're pretty good about that. I hope they keep their laying reservation system. some places are like a shark tank and it's very uncomfortable swimming in busy Lanes.

The pool is glorious, nicer than Thoreau Club or any other private pools in the area. It's not overchlorinated, so you don't reek of bleach after swimming...
