Important Notice Please Read

Swimmers Guide is not connected with any of the facilities listed on this site in any way. We cannot tell you the pools’ opening and closing times or when Senior Aerobics classes are held; we cannot tell you about the availability or cost of swimming lessons; we cannot get you discounted admission to swim at any of them; and 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 admission policies, and their single-visit or casual swimming prices. Where possible, we include hypertext links to the pools’ own official websites and Facebook pages, clickable email addresses, 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 the site is under continual review and is revised whenever the site’s editor becomes aware of a change, but, with more than 20,000 listings, a complete, periodic review of every listing takes about seven years to complete; in many places, prices will change four or five 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For that reason, we ask for your help: If any of the information in the listing is incorrect, out of date, or could be improved, please tell us.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. (No, it's not a place for you to ask us questions. What we have in each listing is the latest news we have.)

Also, 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 the area and visiting for the first time. Just go to the Add a Pool section of the site, read the first page, then fill out the questionnaire.

Facility Reviews

Outstanding; for a public facility, you can't beat this one.
Coin operated lockers - open only once for your 50¢. Also has a walking pool, a kiddy pool, and a large hot tub. It closes for meets, call to be sure it's open. A busy facility, it could be cleaner - but considering the load, they do a good job.
Clean locker/shower room and friendly staff. Best times are mid/late morning, and after 8 PM. At 7 PM I had a lane to myself and really enjoyed it!
I discovered this hidden gem by accident on a work trip to the area. It is a superb 50m facility set up SCY and deserted at 6 AM. It's relatively new, clean, has good circulation that makes the air quite breathable and nice lockers.

The measured water temperature was 83.1ºF, a little warm, but considering most public pools in the area are at least 84ºF this temperature is just fine.

Highly recommend!
