I used to go to this YMCA but the lifeguards are out of control. The smallest infraction will cause them to blow their whistle and act like you just robbed a bank. I understand the need to keep people safe at the pool but these lifeguards react to things that are not even slightly dangerous. Is it necessary to be watched every second you are in the pool area and have the lifeguards tell you not to splash, how to get into the pool properly, and give the swimmers orders? If they only reacted to things that are actually DANGEROUS instead of trying to be the swim-police then the pool would be much more enjoyable. Also, the cops watch the people working out in the main gym. This is not normal.

I am also a member of the Carondelet Park YMCA. The lifeguards in the pool area are indeed fascists. I have joint problems so I need to go from the main wading pool directly into the lap swim lanes but I am not allowed to duck under the rope separating the lap swim area and the shallow main pool. I do not have the strength to climb down directly into the lap swim lanes so I need to duck under the rope separating the pool with the lap swim lanes. The lifeguards are out of control and are obsessed with rules and regulations even when there is no danger relating to the activity they are telling the swimmer to stop doing.

i like this pool. the lifeguards are quite strict, but they loosen up after a while. the pool itself is great, even though it is sort of shallow.
