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For that reason, we ask for your help: If any of the information in the listing is incorrect, out of date, or could be improved, please tell us.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

This facility has been in and out of the database a couple of times, as the city has curtailed and then extended its opening season. We hope the return to year-round operations is now permanent! [May, 2015]

Facility Reviews

It is convenient; there is ample parking; the staff is friendly and cordial; and the water is clean. It's hard to beat that combination!
This is a beautiful pool. (Any time 50m is available, it's a plus.) The staff is very nice and helpful. The water is cool and clean. I went on a weekday at 10 AM and was the only one there for awhile. Typical park bathrooms, changing area, showers. There are cubby boxes on the pool deck to leave your stuff while you swim. Free sunscreen in the changing area!

This is a wonderful pool. It's outdoors with beautiful, clean water at just the right temperature for laps. Call or see the schedule on its website for the long/short course schedule. There are simple changing rooms with no lockers. On our visit, the men's showers worked great but the women's lacked water pressure. Still, all in all, a great place to swim your laps.

When I went here in May of 2022, the morning was a swimmer's dream, with six hours of long course lanes (5:30 to 11:30 AM) each weekday morning. The water was cool and clear, the double big green Swimnerd pace clocks were visible from both ends, and there were never so many people that circle swimming was required.

While there are rudimentary showers and change rooms, there are no lockers in which to lock your stuff. I also saw they had evening hour SCY lap swimming available, but I didn't check it out. This is a GREAT pool for a workout.
