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For that reason, we ask for your help: If any of the information in the listing is incorrect, out of date, or could be improved, please tell us.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 Reviews

A hidden gem. Very fast pool. Serious competition venue. Frequent host to NCAA Division II Championships. Newly renovated locker and shower facilities and a pro shop make swimming here an absolute delight. Bring your own lock and towel.
Huge - No problem finding a lane in the early A.M. The water temperature was great for serious workouts! Even better is that the roof allows it to be opened to the outdoors. The locker facilities were great. Helpful and chipper staff (at 6 A.M.). Out-of-towners welcomed!
Swam here two days during the first week of March 2014. I can confirm this facility is as advertised and reviewed: It's a huge facility, with adjoining YMCA fitness center and 23 lanes in the main pool - no worries for space at 5:30 AM - 7:30 AM, when I was there. Their schedule indicates that they have two or three teams that should be working out at that time, which would take 10 to 14 lanes, depending on the day, but they weren't in evidence the week I was there. The lane schedule is available on the Y website, so check in advance to be sure.

I'm not crazy about the stainless gutter sides than extend about a foot or so below the water line and the crack formed where they end at the target, but you get used to it.

The Courtyard Marriott has 10 passes on a first come, first served basis (these recycle as guests turn them back in after their work out--the hotel takes back your room key to be sure you do!). What a joy to roll out of bed and have a place like this next door.

Note that when they've played water polo the evening before, the pool loses 12 lanes for the following morning until they get the ropes back in.

If you are a YMCA member anywhere else, you get a discounted entry and, if you're not at a hotel with a guest pass, they take all walk ins for $10 a visit. And yes, staff was very friendly, even at 5:30 AM when they opened the doors!

This is a great facility with lots of open lanes. At $10.00, the price is steep but, as my wife said, "It's cheaper than a beer at Disney and you wouldn't hesitate to buy that." Just watch for the swim meets that close the center from time to time. Great staff and locker rooms.

Terrific pool! I visited in mid-afternoon on a fall Friday when swim teams were practicing in the main pool. I swam in the adjacent training pool that was a bit warmer but still good for a nice workout.
