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For that reason, we ask for your help: If any of the information in the listing is incorrect, out of date, or could be improved, please tell us.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

The finest community pool I’ve ever seen. Great digital clock at end of pool. Wide long course lanes.
Laid out for short course, at 4 PM I had 14 (14!) lanes to choose from. Deep and cold, excellent wave suppression, overflow pool and perhaps ozone cleaned. One of the very best. Leisure pool to keep splashers apart from swimmers. Bring your own lock, but judging from the state of the lockers take your clothes pool-side.
DIRTY! Clouds of stuff swirling on the bottom. I won't go back.
This is a great community pool. It's usually set for short-course but you can call or check the 50-Meter Pool Schedule on its website ("website", above) to find when it's long-course. There were lots of empty lanes when I swam. The locker room is Spartan but at least there is soap in the showers.

The pool is either set up for eight 50-meter lanes or 14 lanes of 25-yards. You can call the facility of visit their website ["website", above] for exact facility hours and pool set-up. It is important to note that Sante Fe is at an altitude of 7,200 feet!!! There is a huge digital clock at the far end of the pool. There is also a co-ed Jacuzzi and sauna.
