Changing areas and lockers
As a member, you have access to lockers with electronic locks, so you don’t need to bring a lock—simply program a combination when you come to the pool.
The pool locker rooms also include hair dryers and SuitMate bathing suit spinners. SuitMate removes up to 95 percent of the water in a suit in 10 seconds while protecting the fabric.
Towels are available to rent for a $1 fee. View the Locker and Towel Rental page for more details.
