Cheap, cheap, cheap!! Oh, did we mention that the swimming here is $1.50? And, you might think that a basically freebie swim might mean a scary pool, right? Not here. The Cecil center has been serving Jacksonville since 2004 and is a find for Jacksonville water-lovers and those out-of-towners lucky enough to learn about its existence.
The 50-meter pool is typically set up short course, but all the trimmings of a top notch pool are here. Check out the pics.
About a 15 minute drive from downtown Jax (straight down Normandy Blvd).
A fitness center is here too, but we primarily recommend this facility for the free (or very nearly free) swim.
