YWCA's new Talkington facility is gorgeous. I've already swam there for hours. There's a concession stand, a toddler splash pad and water slides. Yes, even grown-ups can ride the slides (I certainly did).

There are several lifeguards on duty at all times, ensuring a safe and fun environment for everyone. There are even special lifts so less mobile folks can enjoy the pool, too.

The Talkington facility, located at 62nd & Elgin, is more than just a pool. It also offers a basketball court, a workout room, racquetball, a rock wall and classes. I'll be taking the Swing Dance classes. And since membership also includes the Livermore facility, you can take yoga and jazzercise classes and utilize their indoor lap pool as well.

Individual memberships are $35 monthly and families (defined as two adults and any children under 18 living in the household) are $55 a month.
