This is a better than average outdoor pool and we understand that it may be renovated in the future. At present, however, the $3/day entry fee will give you access to 25-yards of fish-like pleasure. Sorry for the water polo shots, but that's what was ongoing at the time of our visit. Our only beef with this spot is the limited lap swim hours: Monday-Friday 6:00-8:00pm and Sat/Sun 7:30-11:30am.
Only two hours during the week can make for some crowded lanes! Still it's a convenient option for those staying in the Newport Beach area. Cash isn't allowed at the pool, so buy a swim card ($15/5 visits) online before you show up: https://activenet017.active.com/cnbreg/
