Where do you often go swimming in your city?

I have to admit living in an urban area has its perks, one of which is a variety of sports and entertainment facilities available. Swimming is the only sport I’m good at and I usually go to a local recreation center every weekend for swimming workouts. I’m totally in love with the amenities there since it offers a wide range of state-of-the-art fitness equipment at a reasonable price. As for swimming, it has a modern shower area as well as sauna and steam room for more thorough relaxation.
