The Nelson Center Pool is an 8 lane 50-meter pool (they use 7 lanes for competition and leave one lane open for warmups/warm downs) surrounded by the gorgeous 88-acre Lincoln Park.  The city of Springfield offers families many tourism opportunities  as it is the home  of  Abraham Lincoln  and is the Illinois state capital.
