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For that reason, we ask for your help: If any of the information in the listing is incorrect, out of date, or could be improved, please tell us.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

We had this pool listed as 20 meters long for nine years, but a swimmer who visited the club told us us the correct length is actually 25 yards. Shortly thereafter, a member wrote to tell us it's "about 23 yards".We believe we finally got it right at 20y.

Facility Reviews

The pool has lines painted but no lane dividers; it feels like an open water swim after a while. The facility has the feel of a poorly maintained YMCA but is considered a high end workout facility.
For those stuck in a hotel downtown who need to get their gills wet, it's probably better than nothing. Visitors may also want to take along work out clothes. The place could use new paint, but they have lots of Nautilus machines, bicycles, and a rowing machine, all included.
Super convenient location for the French Quarter. The facility is gorgeous: an old mansion filled with exercise equipment, an elegant reading room, and a bar. The pool is surrounded by pillars and beautiful old marble floor tile. Pool itself is basic, made of concrete and with high walls that make it wavy, even if you're the only one in the pool. Of the five marked lanes, only two are good choices, but when I was there, only one other swimmer was present. The pool closes occasionally for aqua classes in afternoon/evening: call ahead to check the schedule. Amenities included towels, shampoo, conditioner, body wash in shower, suit spinner, sauna, and steam room (there is no hot tub).
