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For that reason, we ask for your help: If any of the information in the listing is incorrect, out of date, or could be improved, please tell us.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

This is a new facility and less crowded than many of the other public pools on Hong Kong Island. The main pool is divided into lanes for lap swimming and a free swimming area. Some of the lanes are used for coaching and squads, but there are always two lanes for public swimming. The best time to go is late in the evening when it's less crowded.

Water temperatures can climb to 86ºF (30ºC) or more in the winter, when it's filled with people doing geriatric breaststroke. Difficult for serious laps.
[August, 2014]
I went on a Wednesday in May, as both Morrison Hill and Kowloon Park (indoor pool) were on their annual, seven-week shutdown. Arriving at 8:20 PM, the pool was pretty much unswimmable due to overcrowding with ultra-slow, almost non-swimmers in the two lap lanes. Kick boards are prohibited, as always, in Hong Kong. Avoid.
[May, 2016]
We swam late morning on a Wednesday in October and at 8:30 AM on the following Saturday. The number of lap lanes varied between two and three. As others have reported, there was no sorting by pace; there were slow breaststrokers in every lane. When there were only two or three others, it wasn't too bad, otherwise, the continuous passing was tiring. Also, lane lines are NOT turbulence-reducing, so waves from the busy 10 lane pool were everywhere. The facility is very nice and staff helpful. Be careful to check the website for closings, as there are weekly shutdowns for maintenance and frequent “school festivals”.
