Swimming Pools

Swimming is another great way to stay in shape. Many apartments close to TCC have resort style swimming pools with added amenities like lounge chairs, a sun deck or even an area to cook out.

Another benefit of apartments with pools is the heated spa, which is great for relaxing after a hard workout or to enjoy a cool evening.
