The new, modern, bright and inviting facility features a light-filled 6-lane pool with co-ed sauna, whirlpool and steam room right on the pool deck for safer enjoyment with an optimal environment with energy efficiency that benefits the Y’s bottom line.  

The new facility has features absent in the old facility, like the zero-depth entry to the pool which has been a great benefit to members with mobility issues and the whirlpool sauna and steam room on the pool deck.
