There is your standard 2 width and tread water swim test to go in the deep end, which is actually the majority of the pool, and I ended up having mostly to myself. The swimming was very enjoyable, and they do allow diving off the deep end, which is great because I like to monkey around in the pool a bit, but if you're mostly into swimming laps, just check the signage and follow the times. They don't have any deck chairs or tables, but if you have a bunch of kids they can post up on the (overgrown) grass. I'll probably go back soon to check out lap swim, but it wouldn't be my first choice for a lazy afternoon.
