UNC Wellness Center at Northwest Cary


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For that reason, we ask for your help: If any of the information in the listing is incorrect, out of date, or could be improved, please tell us.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

I swam in the pool this morning and it's great. Not your typical wellness center pool. Much deeper (at least at one end) and much better gutters/lane ropes than most gyms. The only downside is the water temperature. It was great today at 81ºF (27ºC), but they've got the heater on and are looking to maintain it at 84º. If they'd keep it at 81º or 82º, it would be nicer than the Triangle Aquatic Center's 10 lane program pool.

This is a great pool. The always clear water is kept around 83º. You can often get your own lane in the early afternoon. During Covid restrictions, you need to reserve, but it's fairly easy to do, even a few days out. The locker rooms are large and clean, pretty good private club level.
[December, 2020]
I was a member here for two years (2015-2016), but realised that it was too expensive for the amount that I was able to swim peacefully. Hopefully the volume is regulated better now with COVID restrictions. However, before the pandemic, weekends were always much too crowded, except very late in the evening. I typically swam only on weeknights the hour before closing. Although I appreciate that the pool seemed clean, the water was typically too warm for my taste. I decided it was no longer worth the high cost.
