Indoor pool for a day?

indoor pool black and whiteJK emails:

I have a friend coming to visit on Saturday, 2/5, and we'd like to find an indoor pool where we could swim for the day. Anyone know of any schools/gyms/hotels with an arrangement like this?

We're guessing there are probably a handful of places around the area. Got a suggestion for JK? Please share!

Voorheesville high school has open swimming on Saturdays from 1 - 3. The cost is $2/person. I'm not sure if you're looking to swim laps for exercise or just hang out and jump off the diving board. The pool has an open area where mainly families w/kids play and at least 3 lanes for lap swimming. It's never very crowded.

Know anyone with a Y membership? You can go as a guest for $10 (unless they have not used their 3 free guest passes). The Guilderland YMCA has a great, huge pool (and a hot tub, sauna, and steam room).

I'm pretty sure you can pay to swim at the Holiday Inn on Wolf Rd. Give the front desk a call and ask, I know some people who have brought kids there to swim.

the center for disabilities might charge $5 . that is in albany near st. peters . you might be able to go to the peter cincotti . i don't suggest after school ,or on a week end. too noisy, and crowded. that is off wolf road in albany

Niskayuna has a similar deal as Voorheesville. No diving board, but 8 lap lanes and a large shallow area for splashing around.

Cohoes community center has a pool, with a nominal fee.

Check the Rudy Ciccotti Center off Wolf Rd. in Colonie. 5186940703

I believe that the Cohoes Community Center has a 1 shot deal - use of the gym/pool, etc. for $5.00 a day.

Public Bath #2 on Pearl St. in Albany has been much talked about recently regarding it's pussible closure and is well worth the $1 it costs to enter.

@Jesse: Public Bath No. 2 closed on December 30.

The Rudy Cicotti center, as mentioned above, is great!! there is an indoor water park as well as a lap pool and awesome hot tub. the park has a lazy river that has fun noodles (or just walk around in it), a 20 ft waterslide and the whole splash pad stuff for the kids. it also has an indoor track and all the cardio work out equipment. You should check it out!

Our family used to belong to Ciccotti Center, and we all absolutely loved it. Unfortunately, the price increased so much that we can no longer afford the $100+ per month in fees. We looked at going for a day but even that was $15 each :-(
