Important Notice Please Read - CLICK HERE

Swimmers Guide is not connected with any of the more than 20,000+ facilities listed on this site in any way. We cannot tell you the pools’ opening and closing times; we cannot tell you about the availability and cost of swimming lessons; we cannot help you find your children’s lost goggles or bathing suits.

We can and do try to give you reliable information about the pools, their locations, their access policies, and their single-visit or casual swimming prices. Where possible, we include email addresses and hypertext links to the pools’ own official websites, and links to the websites of the clubs and teams that swim there. Look to those resources within each listing for more detailed information.

The data in each listing is under continual review and is revised whenever the site’s editors become aware of a change but, with more than 20,000 listings, a complete, periodic review of every listing takes about three years to complete; in many places, prices will change two or three times before we have a chance to check the pool’s official website again.

For that reason, we ask for your help: If any of the information in the listing is incorrect, out of date, or could be improved, please tell us. There is an "Edit" button on just about every line of every listing, click on the edit button to tell us what needs to be changed. Please consider checking the listings of the pools you regularly use at home or when traveling, as your knowledge may be helpful to someone else who is unfamiliar with your area and visiting for the first time.

To our English users: For reasons described in the FAQ, county names shown the listings in England are the cities' and towns' historic counties, not necessarily the counties they are assigned to now.

Facility Notes

Pool 1 is considered a deep water pool so a "deep water certificate" is required. This involves passing a swimming test - the lifeguards can assist on this; they will sign a slip of paper and the office staff will create a certificate valid for three years, allowing you to swim in all deep water pools in the city. Bring a passport photo; the card costs 10 RMB. [July, 2019]
As of July, 2019, hours were: Weekdays from noon to 4 PM and from 7 to 9 PM; weekends from noon to 9 PM.

Facility Reviews

This is a well worn facility consisting of two 25m x 16m, 6 lane pools. One lane of each pool is shallow for water walking. The deep water pool is a great temperature, but beware: the lanes are ungraded, swimmers (tend) go counter-clockwise, and most do breaststroke. The other swimmers can be frustrating, so get in early for a lane to yourself (for a while) - additionally it appears the nearby school? summer-school? uses the pool in the before 2 PM and from 4 to 7 PM, so there's no swimming early (sadly).

The staff is charming and helpful - but absolutely no English is spoken.

Useful tips:

1.Buy your ticket from the Natatorium office (not the office opposite the pool entrance); the office is a set of glass doors directly to a reception desk (not the glass doors leading to gym/staircase/etc.).

2. If you need a deepwater card, get a lifeguard to check that you can swim four lengths; then (at some stage) take the 10 RMB to the natatorium office, then take the receipt + piece of paper + passport photo to the office-booth opposite the pool entrance.

3. The changing rooms are VERY busy; and the locking can seem odd at first - each locker must be opened by the custodian AND your key (one after the other). The custodians are very pleasant; there were two on duty whenever I swam.
