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For that reason, we ask for your help: If any of the information in the listing is incorrect, out of date, or could be improved, please tell us.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

The facility was very clean, not crowded (7 - 9 AM), and has wide lanes. The water was a little warm for me (83º), but it was fine. Maybe they just keep it a little warmer in the winter. There is an awesome view of the mountains through the large windows. They have lap swimming 7 - 10 AM and 11:30 AM - 1 PM. They also have water aerobics classes and free swim for kids at other times. I definitely recommend this facility to other swimmers!
Nice pool! I went at 9 AM on a Friday in November and very few people were there. The water temperature was 81ºF. -- perfect. Current times for lap swimming were 7 to 10 AM and noon to 3:30 PM on weekdays, with slightly longer times on weekends. I think this fall/winter schedule is slightly different from the summer schedule, so check in advance. There are no hair dryers in locker room, but they had a suit spinner!

The pool has backstroke flags. Swim caps are not required. The pool schedule is variable, but I did not see any lanes being shared, and several were vacant.

Lockers are available and free, bring your own lock. Shampoo and soap are provided. There is a centrifuge ("suit spinner") in the men's locker room. The air temperature in the room with the pool and in the locker room feelt like about 82ºF, to my surprise. (The water was also 82ºF.)

The surrounding mountains are lovely, and it snowed while I was swimming.

With the right sense of humor, the name of this place can be quite enjoyed. I am 71 years old and there were between thirty and fifty people there. The only ones who appeared to me to be younger than am I were the lifeguards.
