Alpine Aqualand

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For that reason, we ask for your help: If any of the information in the listing is incorrect, out of date, or could be improved, please tell us.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

There are lane lines set up according to "slow, med, and fast". There are no lockers where you can use your own lock. There is a pay locker system for $2 that will hold a medium size bag. They also have blue totes to place your belongings in and you can take it on deck with you and set it at the end of your lane.
This is a large, indoor facility with a big recreational pool, an instructional pool, and the lap pool. The water quality is very good; the lap pool is kept at about 83ºF (28ºC). It was uncrowded on a weekday morning at 7:45.

The no. 1 and no. 2 buses take you to the pool from Queenstown. It's about a six to eight minute ride. Get off at the Frankton hub and walk around/across the golf course to the pool. Note: The bus will stop only if you signal the driver by waving (learned the hard way!).
