Important Notice Please Read

Swimmers Guide is not connected with any of the facilities listed on this site in any way. We cannot tell you the pools’ opening and closing times or when Senior Aerobics classes are held; we cannot tell you about the availability or cost of swimming lessons; we cannot get you discounted admission to swim at any of them; and 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 admission policies, and their single-visit or casual swimming prices. Where possible, we include hypertext links to the pools’ own official websites and Facebook pages, clickable email addresses, 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 the site is under continual review and is revised whenever the site’s editor becomes aware of a change, but, with more than 20,000 listings, a complete, periodic review of every listing takes about seven years to complete; in many places, prices will change four or five 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For that reason, we ask for your help: If any of the information in the listing is incorrect, out of date, or could be improved, please tell us.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. (No, it's not a place for you to ask us questions. What we have in each listing is the latest news we have.)

Also, 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 the area and visiting for the first time. Just go to the Add a Pool section of the site, read the first page, then fill out the questionnaire.

Facility Notes

The 20m pool is inside the "moat" created by the main pool.
The facility has coin lockers; towels and swimsuits are available for rental.
When we visited the pool's website in late June, 2020, there was a notice of an impending 10-month closure for renovations that was expected to begin sometime in the summer of 2020. The date was pending finalization of contracts, so was not yet known - nor did they indicate how much notice they'd be giving before the actual closure.

Facility Reviews

You can get a workout, but better for slower swimmers than fast; a unique experience. Great for families, with a children's pools and a neat diving area - towers, boards, and a trampoline
The main pool doesn't have lanes and pinches in the corners, but is wide enough for 3 - 4 swimmers. The 20m pool is better, but was filled with pool toys and kids.
Helpful staff; spotless changing rooms… The pool took getting used to.
Amazing - incredibly clean and didn't seem crowded at all! I loved it.
