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For that reason, we ask for your help: If any of the information in the listing is incorrect, out of date, or could be improved, please tell us.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 the only place in town to swim a full 50 meters, since the bulkhead at the Harry Bailey seems to be permanently splitting the pool in two. The pool staff are not particularly friendly, but they do their jobs adequately. Locker rooms are an awkward design, but there's a separate changing room for families, so fewer small children running around. It's convenient for the west side of town.
A really nice Olympic-level pool. There was hardly anyone there during the day, when I visited. The pool was setup with bulkheads as three, separate, 25m swim areas. No lane lines were deployed. I had a whole section to myself.
School groups use the recreation pool adjacent to the competition pool. Huge hot tub. The facility is co-located with a high school, so watch out for erratic driving in the parking lot and in the vicinity.
The Shaw Center is a five-minute drive from airport hotels.
Inexpensive coffee, breakfast, and lunch can be had at the cafe in the lobby.
