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For that reason, we ask for your help: If any of the information in the listing is incorrect, out of date, or could be improved, please tell us.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

I went on a Sunday at 7:30 AM and the pool was completely empty; I had it to myself. Based on my stroke count, it felt like it was a 25m pool. The lanes felt a little narrow, I can't see how you could share a lane. People have complained that the shallower end is too shallow, but I guess I'm short, the water went up to my waist and I was able to do flip turns with no problems. The water was colder than most pools. I also felt that there was more chlorine in this pool than usual, but not too much to make you sick.

There was a non-digital pace clock in a corner. Backstroke flags were in place. There is a little shelf with swim toys available: fins, pull buoys, paddles, and kickboards. There was no lifeguard.

The pool is elevated from the main gym, so there are no strange people starring while you are swimming. There's not much deck space, so you need to leave your towels on hooks on the wall. There was a white board with some Masters swimming sets, when I was there.

The pool is often crowded around noon but has lanes available early morning; I swam here at 5:30 AM on a weekday and had a lane to myself. The pool is a bit warm but acceptable. There is a rack with buoys, kickboards, a couple sets of paddles, and five sets of different-sized fins. The locker rooms are nice and fully-equipped

TIP: If you take a tour (10 minutes) you can use the facility for free for 24 hours. If you opt out of a tour and pay the $30 guest fee, you have access for 24 hours. Either way, swim the first day and then come an hour earlier the next day to swim free.
