Lawrence Indoor Aquatic Center


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For that reason, we ask for your help: If any of the information in the listing is incorrect, out of date, or could be improved, please tell us.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

We have been told that the water temperature information on the pool's website is incorrect and will be changed. Due to standards for sanctioned swim meets that require water temperatures between 77ºF (25ºC) and 82ºF (28ºC), and to avoid having to change the pool temperature at irregular intervals, the facility has decided to maintain a constant temperature of "about 80ºF". The facility's website is to be changed to reflect the new situation, but the change has not yet been made. [November, 2020]
In addition to the competition pool, there's also an 87°F (31°C) Family Fun Center pool, with zero-depth entry, a waterslide, floating play features, spray fountains, and interactive play structures. The center also has a sun deck, cafe-style concession, meeting space, private changing rooms, and public locker/shower areas.
Summertime visitors to Lawrence will be interested in knowing about the 50 meter, 8 lane pool at the Lawrence Outdoor Aquatic Center located at 727 Kentucky Street; see it HERE on Google Maps.

Facility Reviews

I've visited many public pools in my travels and this was the nicest one I'd ever seen. Very modern and immaculately clean. Water was crystal clear... few swimmers, lots of open lanes, and the entire facility was really beautiful.
Very clean changing rooms, nice staff. The pool was set up for short course and had plenty of lanes open. Great facility, it's overall in awesome shape.

I've lived in 13 states and competed with the U.S. Masters, USA Swimming, and Senior Games for eight years. This is one of the two best lap swimming facilities I have experienced. It can't be beat for lap swimming, with continuous perimeter gutters and anti-wave lane lines, although the lanes themselves are a little narrow. As a resident of Lawrence, it's rare when you have to wait for an open lane, and even then, the wait is brief. Lane sharing is not necessary. The pool temperature is a consistent 79ºF. My only complaint is that the open hours on the weekend should be expanded.
