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For that reason, we ask for your help: If any of the information in the listing is incorrect, out of date, or could be improved, please tell us.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

I just LOVE to swim there. It's got cold, real spring water with no chlorine, a huge lap swimming area, and is just perfect on hot days.
This is the oldest man-made pool in Texas. Somewhat weird (like Austin), the pool has green water, angled-in walls, and the formerly in-style 33.33-yard (100-foot) length. The water is cool but refreshing on summer days. I have seen people wearing wetsuits but you don't need one. You can usually have a lane to yourself or split one with someone else. It's probably the only place you can set a PR in the 100 FOOT freestyle! There are no lockers and the dressing room has no roof. An experience you will remember.

I love swimming at Deep Eddie. The water is cool, clear, non-chlorinated, spring water. The hours are reasonable (check the website) and one can go by the day or buy a multi-use punch card. This is my top choice for lap swimming.
