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For that reason, we ask for your help: If any of the information in the listing is incorrect, out of date, or could be improved, please tell us.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

This was the site of the 1996 Centennial Olympic Games swimming events. Originally built as an indoor/outdoor pool, it was fully enclosed in 2003 and a multi-purpose floor was built above the pool.The 50m bubble covered pool at Tech that was formerly included in this listing has been demolished. The diving well is used for laps when swim teams are using the 50m pool.
In March 2016 the Aquatic Center was re-named in honor of the late Georgia Tech swimming coach and physical training professor, Coach Herb McAuley. The pool hosted the 2016 NCAA Swim and Dive Championships and was named the #1 Collegiate Aquatic Facility in the country.

Facility Reviews

This is an excellent facility – but you need your own lock for the minimal locker rooms. Towels available.
This is a great facility. There is a coach on deck Mon., Wed., and Fri. at noon, but not that many people so you end up doing the workout by yourself. If you use the aquatic locker room, there are larger lockers (i.e., good for a brief case). They have locks for sale for $6.
[March, 2013]
Clean and tidy locker rooms. I was there around noon on a weekday and the pool was almost abandoned.
