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For that reason, we ask for your help: If any of the information in the listing is incorrect, out of date, or could be improved, please tell us.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

It's a great place for kids. There is a slide and a water park-type structure that are very entertaining. The fee covers a two hour session, after which the pool is cleared for the next group. It's free if you're a member. It does get crowded during the summer, so if you're looking for someplace quiet to relax, this probably isn't it.
The pool is open to public only Wednesday thru Sunday, with just two hours a day available, except on weekends, when there are two, two-hour sessions offered.
[June, 2017]
This is a very nice facility. There are two pools — one dedicated to lap swimming, the other a family pool with slides. On a hot August day, the family pool was crowded, but the lap pool wasn’t; I had my own lane. The lap pool is open many more hours than family pool — check the website or (better) call before heading over.

The locker rooms are adequate with common showers; bring a padlock.

Note that if it’s your first time you’ll have to provide ID, fill out a waiver, and then wait about 20 minutes while they create a full account for you in their system; this can be frustrating if you only have limited time to swim.
