I have a question about public swimming pools. It seems as though public swimming pools around here are only open for several months in the summer. Do you know of any year round public pools (indoor or outdoor) that offer adult lap swimming? In Oregon, where I am from originally, the city parks and recreation department had public pools that were open all year long and had both early morning and afternoon adult lap swimming times. It really made for nice exercise, and I miss it a lot.

I did not check on residency requirement or fees, so you might want to give a call before you grab your towel and your flip flops if you aren't a resident of the city where the swimming pool is located.
Let me know where you end up!
Note: As promised, I did some additional research and now have a list of places where people can go swimming year-round. Here more information about pools that are open in fall and winter.
