Sun Yat Sen Memorial Park Swimming Pool

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For that reason, we ask for your help: If any of the information in the listing is incorrect, out of date, or could be improved, please tell us.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

This is a new facility and less crowded than many of the other public pools on Hong Kong Island. The main pool is divided into lanes for lap swimming and a free swimming area. Some of the lanes are used for coaching and squads, but there are always two lanes for public swimming. The best time to go is late in the evening when it's less crowded.

Water temperatures can climb to 86ºF (30ºC) or more in the winter, when it's filled with people doing geriatric breaststroke. Difficult for serious laps.
[August, 2014]
I went on a Wednesday in May, as both Morrison Hill and Kowloon Park (indoor pool) were on their annual, seven-week shutdown.
Arriving at 8:20 PM, the pool was pretty much unswimmable due to overcrowding with ultra-slow, almost non-swimmers in the two lap lanes. Kick boards are prohibited, as always, in Hong Kong. Avoid.
[May, 2016]
We swam late morning on a Wednesday in October and at 8:30 AM on the following Saturday. The number of lap lanes varied between two and three. As others have reported, there was no sorting by pace; there were slow breaststrokers in every lane. When there were only two or three others, it wasn't too bad, otherwise, the continuous passing was tiring. Also, lane lines are NOT turbulence-reducing, so waves from the busy 10 lane pool were everywhere. The facility is very nice and staff helpful. Be careful to check the website for closings, as there are weekly shutdowns for maintenance and frequent “school festivals”.
