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For that reason, we ask for your help: If any of the information in the listing is incorrect, out of date, or could be improved, please tell us.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

Like all of the older, as yet unrefurbished, San Francisco city pools, this one is 100 feet long, which makes for a nice compromise between long and short course. Unfortunately, theft is rampant at the city pools, in and out of the locker rooms and environs, so beware!
[May, 2013]
As with all SF city pools, exact change is required for the entrance fee. The pool is six lanes wide and, on a Tuesday morning, was divided into three double-wide lanes, initially marked slow, medium, and fast. The speed designations were removed during the session. It was not crowded, but an evening regular told me that the short (1 hour) after-work session is packed. The water was clean and clear, slightly overheated for my taste. The locker room is Spartan. The staff is very friendly.
