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For that reason, we ask for your help: If any of the information in the listing is incorrect, out of date, or could be improved, please tell us.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

It’s an older pool, but the water is clean and pleasant (if a little on the warm side). There are no lockers, so you change and take your stuff on deck. Not in a great area, but it’s OK during the day. It was virtually empty at noon on a Wednesday.
It's in a very urban area, but I found it clean and safe both times I swam here - once at night, the other time at mid-day. It was worth my while each time.
It's a great pool: 8 lanes, 25 meters, ~6-8 swimmers when I swam at 7 - 7:30 AM. It was very clean with basic showers and restrooms. I was pleasantly surprised a city pool would be this nice.

The pool is six lanes, not eight as per an earlier review, four of which were dedicated to lap swimmers, of which there were only three during my workout from 2 to 3:30 PM. There were lots of boards and buoys available. There is a large changing area, but no lockers, all freshly painted and kept quite clean; the pool and deck are aging and well-worn, but kept clean. Where else can you swim while you watch the semis pass overhead on the causeway and tugboats go by at pool level on the Intracoastal Waterway at the same time! The water was a degree too warm, and it's only March.

Tell your Uber/taxi to take you to the corner of SW 4th Avenue and SW 4th Street, and enter the park from there - that avoids driving through some of the dodgier parts of the neighborhood living under the highway that runs overhead.

1) This is a 25m pool. It has a waveless design (gutters, not deck-level), an accessible entry ramp off to one side, and is 4 feet deep in the shallow end and 12 feet deep at the deep end. It is outdoors, so I recommend sunblock.
2) There are no real locker room facilities, so come wearing your suit and plan on showering/changing at home. There are some showers on the deck, but they have only cold water.
3) When I was there, the water was *REALLY WARM.* I'd estimate 83ºF (28ºC). This is a problem for me because I can't really train effectively when it's much over 80ºF (27ºC). That said, the pool appears to be very well-maintained and clean, and my skin didn't feel completely destroyed by the water.
