Asphalt Green is wondrous. The facility is huge and includes a soccer field and basketball court in addition to its extremely impressive pool.

Here the pool is located on the sixth floor and is ringed with floor to ceiling windows, earning the moniker, “a pool with a view.” Swimming is serious business, with the JCC offering a large number of classes for infants, children, and adults, private lessons, dedicated instruction for folks with special needs and a swim team.
