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For that reason, we ask for your help: If any of the information in the listing is incorrect, out of date, or could be improved, please tell us.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

This pool, which opened in 2013, replaced an older, 50m, 6 lane pool at the same location.
We can't say for sure, but we'd bet that the Team Burbank may have had some influence in getting the old pool replaced and made year-round. Our hats are off to them!

Facility Reviews

This is a nice, deep pool, with one shallow end and then a great swim to the other side. Eight lanes, teams usually have four in the morning. There is a kids' pool with a water slide, as well.

The showers and lockers are clean, but the lockers are small, ? of full size, and require a quarter. Strangely, the showers are set at about 5' 10" so, if you're over six feet, you need to bend down to wash. Oh well, nothing is perfect! The bathroom was not very clean but no worse than other LA public pools. It's a good option if The Plunge is closed and you're on the east side.
[January, 2015]
For anyone with a strong dolphin kick (backstroke or free/butterfly) watch-out for the 4-foot depth lanes, they're too shallow for a deep kick without hitting the pool bottom. Beyond the pool depth, this is a nice facility.

Because of the Corona virus pandemic, there's a limit of two swimmers per lane and, if you both want to stop on the wall, it must be at opposite walls.
[June, 2020]
Although the locker rooms never really recovered after the shutdown, and the showers are usually just lukewarm, the rest of the facility is very nice. The staff are very professional and friendly; other pools should learn from this place.
