Solomon Calhoun Community Center Pool

Saint Augustine, FL, UNITED STATES

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For that reason, we ask for your help: If any of the information in the listing is incorrect, out of date, or could be improved, please tell us.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

Great community pool: outdoors, heated, convenient hours. The heating is especially nice when it's below 60º outside; and it’s open late. On the day after Christmas it was open until 7 PM, way past sunset. The pool area and pool were well lit, very clean, and well staffed. There were two lifeguards and a clerk at the entrance. The fee is unbeatable. There are men's and women's changing rooms with small lockers but no hot showers inside. There is a shower to rinse off outside by the pool, though.
The Solomon Calhoun pool is extremely well cared for, excellent for swimming, and available year round, which is great! The staff is friendly, attentive to swimmers, and well informed about weather issues, such as storm warnings. I love this pool and highly recommend it.

It's a great pool with a good water temperature. When I swam, it was set up for 25 meter laps. It has a changing room but no showers, just an outdoor rinse-off type shower tree. Cheap!
