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For that reason, we ask for your help: If any of the information in the listing is incorrect, out of date, or could be improved, please tell us.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

I swim at this pool three times a week when I travel to California. It's a terrific pool. They always have five lanes for non-Masters swimmers. The other eight or 10 lanes are reserved for Masters from 6 AM on in the morning. Perfect for laps.
A beautiful pool and great place to do laps. I'd say the temperature feels more like 80ºF. (27ºC.) It's a clean pool and women's locker room. If I lived in the area, I'd definitely join the Y to swim here all the time. I try to swim here whenever I visit San Diego. Conveniently located right off the 5 Freeway.
[August, 2013]
The pool is in a spacious, well-lit facility, and it was a joy to swim with the morning sunlight streaming in through the skylights. The YMCA itself is very large, bustling with activity even before 6 AM. The spacious women's locker room has a small sauna and both private and open showers, and the Jacuzzi adjacent to the instructional pool has powerful jets. A kids' water-play area separates the instructional and competition pools. The Masters workouts are challenging with friendly and welcoming coaches. (The current schedule can be viewed by clicking the "Pool Schedule" button on the Y's home page HERE.) On Tuesdays/Thursdays two workouts are offered, for both freestyle and IM swimming.
