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For that reason, we ask for your help: If any of the information in the listing is incorrect, out of date, or could be improved, please tell us.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

Lap swim is 25m at all times, 6 AM – 10 PM, except Sunday 6 - 8, when five 50m lanes are available. There are always eight lanes open for lap swim. Usually set up as three, 25m, 8 lane, 7'6" deep sections separated by bulkheads. [September, 2008]
Lovely, pool, lovely people. The only problem is they all like to swim slow breaststroke in the rapido lane. The lifeguards were helpful in sorting out the lanes. They recommend coming before 7:30 AM or at 11 AM for laps.
I use this pool on a regular basis. It is very busy from 11 AM to 12:30 PM, when I typically go. The many lanes are, indeed, marked by speed, but these are suggestions. There is a giant digital clock, with no seconds timing on it. The changing rooms are the 'Oh, well' factor: Cramped and the showers usually require a wait. I take the 7 train and walk 15 minutes to the facility.

NEW POLICY AS OF OCTOBER 1, 2017: No more single day passes!!! How rude and unwelcoming for swimmers who visit. I have swum here for years when visiting family.

I urge anyone who wants to be able to swim here as a guest on a Day Pass to write to Mayor Bill DiBlasio on the Contact the Mayor page of the city's website and let him know that this is not a very nice thing to do.
