Treme Recreation Community Center Swimming Pool


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For that reason, we ask for your help: If any of the information in the listing is incorrect, out of date, or could be improved, please tell us.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

Admission is free, just sign in upon entry.

It's a nice pool and a decent locker room. They keep three, wide lanes open all the time for lap swimmers. It can easily accommodate six swimmers. Just a 15 min walk from the heart of the French Quarter.

This city-owned facility is a nice place to swim. They keep three lanes open for lap swimming at all times. A local said that mid-day he almost never has to share a lane and has never had to swim in circles. He also said to be sure to check the schedule because on Mondays, Wednesdays, and Fridays between noon and 1:30 PM they close the pool for cleaning. The cleanliness is about average for a municipal pool.

Bring your own towel and lock. My standard Master Lock was too big to fit through the hasps on the lockers, so a smaller lock is needed. They would not let me leave my clothes on the pool deck, but a friendly member of the staff loaned me a personal lock.

A word of caution: New Orleans neighborhoods are spotty. One block is perfectly safe and the next is not. The other side of Rampart Street from the French Quarter used to be a “no-go” zone for non-locals, so I asked the concierge at the hotel if I should walk there and they told me to take a taxi and definitely not to walk there after dark.

It's a nice pool. I went on a Friday around 10 AM; there was an open lane and continued to be that way for the whole swim. The water was a good temperature and clean. The shallow end is only 3-feet deep, a little too shallow for flip turns (for me anyway). The other reviews are accurate, bring a small lock for the locker room, which was also very nice. I felt safe in the area, but it's a 'developing' area. A free public pool is great!
