Crestview's Central Baptist Church offers public pool access

Published: Thursday, July 11, 2013 at 06:30 PM.

Her Tuesday and Thursday classes attract 20 to 30 participants.

“Basically, everything you do on the land you can do in the water,” Smith said. “It’s a nice change because you are sweating in the water, but you don’t realize how hot and sweaty you are. Because of that, she advises participants to bring plenty of liquids. The pool has an on-duty lifeguard during community swim hours — just in case, Young said. The facility features a fitness room with weight lifting equipment, basketball courts and a soon to be reopened racquetball court. ROC staffers are installing wheelchair accessible seating to allow those with special needs to enjoy the pool.

Such amenities are available to — and often are used by — non-church members, Young said.

“Most of the time, the only people with the church are the (ROC) staff,” she said.
