Menlo Swim and Sport - Burgess Memorial Pool


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For that reason, we ask for your help: If any of the information in the listing is incorrect, out of date, or could be improved, please tell us.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

The facility was closed in 2004, the old pool was torn out, and three new pools (the two above, plus an 85ºF children's splash pool with water play features) opened in 2006.

Facility Reviews

Fabulous new pool. The lap pool has lanes open 14 hours a day, which is unheard of in the Bay Area. Separate teaching and kiddy pools keep the lap pool uncrowded. Located within easy walking distance of Caltrain station for those without cars. A winner! Parking is easy and free.
This pool has the best drop-in hours and pricing in the area. I also like the availability of lockers (bring your own lock); Rinconada Pool is nice, but the lack of storage is disconcerting. Plenty of parking, as well.
I can confirm the earlier reviews; it's a great pool, with good hours, location, and parking. For COVID, the only restriction is that a mask is required indoors but the locker rooms are open.
