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For that reason, we ask for your help: If any of the information in the listing is incorrect, out of date, or could be improved, please tell us.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

NOTE: During a December, 2018, review of this listing, we noted that its City of Miami Beach web page ("Website", above) said that the pool was closed until further notice due to repairs. There was no indication of when the pool was closed or, more importantly, when it might be expected to reopen. We'll check the site from time to time going forward but, if you find out that the pool has reopened before we do, please let us know, so we can update this listing.

Facility Reviews

The pool was clean, but there was confusion as to whether the general public could swim on Sunday, which was when we went. We called and they said to come on over. When we got there they said the rate was $10, but then said they couldn't take money on Sundays. They finally let us swim since we had walked a couple of miles to get there and they felt guilty. We were the only pair in the pool although the air temperature was about 65ºF (18ºC). with a steep wind. Sunday hours were 2:00 PM to 6:00 PM.
I swam here on a Saturday at 10:30 AM and got the last open lane. The water was a little warm, around 83º - 84ºF (28º - 29ºC), maybe because the sun was beating down on it. The pool was clean and staff was very friendly and helpful. There were six lanes open from 9:30 AM to 5:30 PM on a Saturday. It's a beautiful facility! And there's lots to do after your swim: bowling, ice skating, basketball, etc....so much for your $10!
