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For that reason, we ask for your help: If any of the information in the listing is incorrect, out of date, or could be improved, please tell us.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 pool is great. It's an old nostalgic cement pool and stadium, but the water is kept cold. Swim hours can be interrupted when the guard takes a lunch break from 11 to noon.
The water was so cold I had to cut my swim short,and felt uncomfortable for some time afterwards. Too bad - it is a great old pool!
This is the only free, public-access pool in Hilo. It's a really nice pool, available to all age groups, but it gets crowded during the 6 - 7:10 PM general recreational swim time, because they close off part of the pool for diving, leaving only a small section of the pool for lap swimming. The water can be very cold if it's windy or cloudy, but it's partially covered. Unfortunately, the lap swim hours are not convenient for those who work a normal work day. It would be nice if they had an early morning schedule from 6 - 8 AM for a short course lap swim. They have warm showers in the locker room, which is kept fairly clean.
