Baltic festivities, penitentiary amenities

So yesterday we were heading out to the Latvian center for the Jāņi / Līgo (mid - summer) celebration, when we drove past the Shelton prison (which I think would thoroughly freak out any Latvian - American kid whose parents are taking him/her to camp sight unseen for the first time - "the Latvian children’s summer campMežotne,” conveniently located next to the Washington Corrections Center...").

Joe asked, "do they have a swimming pool?" No, but that would be nice.
