About the Pool

Indoor or outdoor?

It's an outdoor pool. But don't worry - they heat it to a toasty 80 °F year-round.

How big is the pool?

Pretty big: 50 meters x 20 meters.

Short Course? Long Course? Yards, meters?

Both!! In the summer months the pool is set up for 50 meter long course swimming so everyone swims long course meters. The remainder of the year the pool is divided by a bulkhead into both a 25 yard short course and 25 meter short course. Depending on your speed you'll be in either the short course yards or short course meters pool.

Are there showers and lockers?

Yes. There are separate men's and women's locker rooms with showers. Bring your own lock if you want to lock your stuff up during workout.
