You can get a community rec sports pass, but they have a very limited number

I swim like 2 miles a day, 5 to 6 days a week right now in CA. If my life permits in Austin, I would like to keep the same. I am OK to join the program at the UT pool, but I would really like to keep my own schedule and work-out plan. Is it fine with them? (I am no Michael Phelps, but already know all the technique basics.)
As I mentioned, I really need to know the price for a yearly pass due to how often I swim. I checked the West Austin Aquatic Center, and their individual membership is $540/per year per person; Ouch! that is a little more than I expected. Currently, my pass costs me only 50 cents per visit, and my pass only gets charged if I go swim there.(Unbelievable? but is true.) The pool is new and fabulous. I don't expect to find so great a deal in Austin, but I just wish I can find a great olympic size pool for serious lap swimmers with a reasonable price. I am asking too much, aren't I?
Thanks.

How about barton springs? (although passes arent cheap either)

That is a great idea if you like swimming distances. Lots of groups training there in the morning.

Thank you, cinnamon_toast, Austin97,
I checked out Barton Springs, the price is great; and I also looked up some videos of Barton Springs on YouTube. The water seems quite filthy (grass, unknown floating stuffs...). Is it just dirty over the summer or all year round? I do distance swimming, and wish Barton Springs is a good fit for me.
Thanks a lot!

Circle C's pool is open to all residents. You don't pay extra to my knowledge because it's included in your HOA fees. Used to be open all year around. They stopped that for a year or so because of the expense (after they ended the contract with Longhorn Aquatics) but from the website, it appears to be open all year around again. You can contact their HOA office...Denise Nordstrom is the person you'd talk to.

Besides the pool, Circle C is a great place to live! We loved it!!
