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For that reason, we ask for your help: If any of the information in the listing is incorrect, out of date, or could be improved, please tell us.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

This is a beautiful pool! The water is clear. The pool temperature is perfect for lap swimming. The air quality is wonderful. The natural light that streams through the windows is fantastic. It is also a very fast pool for those looking for that. With Grand Junction being at 5,000 feet, this pool provides one with an extra good workout opportunity! They have the pool set up for long course meters in the spring and summer.

Admission covers the pool, workout area, and track. The pool is new and a great place to swim. The usual configuration is 25-yards with up to 18 lanes. When the pool hosts swimming meets or water polo events, there are still lap lanes available. As a regular swimmer here, I have always had a lane to myself. The facility is well-staffed with college kids and the water is clean and cool; the pool was designed for lap and competitive swimming.
