Default Nicest indoor swimming pools?

We are a couple of old babes (early 60's) who love water jogging/aerobics, and do this now in a really clean indoor pool up north. However, when we move to the DFW metroplex, we have no idea where a really clean and nice indoor pool to work out is--that doesn't cost a mint to join. We are looking for an all year around indoor pool, obviously, because we work out 4-5 days a week.
Does anyone know of any really nice, clean and not too expensive to join indoor swimming pools? And where are they located?????
By the way, what would the cost be to join a pool like that in the DFW area? We are paying about $260 a year now, which, we know, is a steal for what we get; and know we probably can't duplicate that package.

The city of Allen has an indoor pool w/ an indoor mini-waterpark for the real little ones.

Rockwall YMCA has an indoor pool open year round that is nice.

Other options are going to be fitness gyms that have indoor pools. LifeTime Fitness has indoor and outdoor pools. The indoor pool is open year round and they offer water classes. It will cost more than your paying though.

Where are you located? Many of the local city's offer reasonable pricing for access to their pools, many of which are indoor. For example, the annual membership for the Plano Rec Centers, which would give you access to all of the city's pool would run you $50 per adult (for seniors over 60).

The city of Plano has an indoor pool also, as does The Colony and I thing Frisco is about to open one if it's not already open. You don't have to live in those cities to use them. You can just pay each time you go.

I also recommend The Allen Natatorium. They have a few adult nights too if you don't want to be around little kids. The lap pool is seperate from the water park and you can get some good excercise done there. They also have a gym upstairs. It is not expensive at all to join. I believe it is 20 dollars a month for non Allen citizens to use the facilities.

Where we live in Denver right now there is a Rec Center with a great indoor pool that has a huge water slide for big kids, a shallow play area for the little ones with a slide, and a lazy river. We are moving to Plano next month and are hoping there is something similar at one of the Plano indoor pools. Does anyone know if there is? Someone told me there is a new indoor pool opening on Parker in August - does anyone know what facilities it will have?

Yes, the Allen pool has a water slide, lazy river, sprayground. The Plano one at Oak Hill I think it's called has an indoor slide and a couple of outdoor slides. I like the Allen pool better because the water is warmer and the regular pool is separate. When a kid p o o p s in the kid side you can still go swim in the other pool while they shock the other one. In Plano it's all the same pool water.

In Plano, Jack Carter and Oak Point have nice childrens areas, see the Plano Rec Center site for more info.
