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For that reason, we ask for your help: If any of the information in the listing is incorrect, out of date, or could be improved, please tell us.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

The facility opened in the Spring of 1998 and was the host site for the 1998 Goodwill Games and the 1999 Phillips 66 National Swimming Championships.
There are several references to an indoor/outdoor, 50m pool that was to have been built adjacent to the main aquatic center and operated jointly by the county and Long Island Swimming. We can find no mention of it on the county's website and it doesn't appear in any of the satellite or street view photographs of the location, so we don't know whether it was ever built or, if built, has subsequently dismantled. If you know anything about the second pool, please let us know. Thank you!

Facility Reviews

Absolutely one of the best pools on the East coast! The temperature is right, the chemicals are right, great gutter system, and over 6 feet deep for most of the lanes. If you were a golfer you'd compare this to Pebble Beach.
The pool lane arrangement varies according to the season. When it is set up with 50 meter, long course lanes, there is also section separated by a bulkhead with 25 meters lanes going width-wise. Sometimes it is set up with two 25 yard sections separated by a bulkhead and another section of 25 meter lanes with a second bulkhead. It has the option of multiple sections of 25 meters also. Masters and youth teams take up many of the lanes from 6 to 8 AM and from 4 to 8 PM. At other times, the pool is not at all crowded. There are many meets on the weekends and there may not be any lanes available or the pool may be closed to the public when meets are in progress.
[June, 2014]
The pool closes for maintenance for one month every year and is unavailable to swimmers for another 30 to 45 days due to swim meets; so purchasing a membership really doesn't make any sense; this pool should be visited on a per diem basis only.
