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For that reason, we ask for your help: If any of the information in the listing is incorrect, out of date, or could be improved, please tell us.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

The pool opened in October, 2007.
There is also a warm water (86º - 88ºF), indoor, teaching/therapy pool.
On October 5, 2018, the aquatic center announced a 22,000 sq. ft. expansion to include a new fitness center, more fan seating, and the addition of a year-round, 50m, heated, outdoor (uncovered), training pool. The new pool is expected to open by the summer of 2020.

Facility Reviews

This palatial facility is worth a visit if you're anywhere nearby. Heavily used but not overcrowded. Best to call in advance if you have your heart set on swimming long course as configurations, bookings, and events vary. The schedule on the web site wasn't quite accurate, but no trouble getting a lane. Friendly staff, state-of-the-art everything, clean facilities. You couldn't ask for more. Bring a towel or purchase one in the on-site swim shop. Extensive snack bar with healthy options.
This facility is worth hunting down, but call ahead to check on both pool schedules, the long course lane schedule, and, most importantly, whether there are any events being held here.

Hopefully the women’s showers are cleaner than they were in all my visits prior to 2017.

Disability alert:
There is a mobile electronic disability chair shared between the pools and it is likely not used often, so leave extra time if you or someone with you needs the chair to enter or exit pool, as it could easily take 15 minutes for the staff to coordinate this (and less time required if need to exit pool).

There is a door directly to the pool deck at the rear of the facility (on the north side of the building), but it is usually locked, call ahead to smooth navigation.
