City Aquatic Center @ the West Family YMCA
Indoors, fifty meters, clocks,
kickboards, pull buoys and crisp cool water!
Look around. You landlocked are
This is not a typical Y pool. It's hooked
up with the city somehow and it's great. Half of it is roped into approximately
eight 25 yard lanes. The remainder is open for Marco-Polo playing brats and
their happy parents. Luckily, I had a lush, wide lane all to my lush, wide
self each time!
If you are feeling ignored
and want to be stared at by people who suspect you are not a local, show up
at this pool with a tan. You'll get the Roswell treatment.A
Indoors, 25 yards, kickboards,
6 lanes, paceclocks, crisp water.
Limited lap swim schedule (like,
an hour at a time) and if the wrong lifeguard is holding court, they pull
every other lane rope out and make you swim in two lanes. Up one and down
the other. Sigh.
This Y is walking distance from downtown
Boise and a million coffee shops. Oh, you will be juiced for this workout
