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For that reason, we ask for your help: If any of the information in the listing is incorrect, out of date, or could be improved, please tell us.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

A smaller but nice facility located in a neighborhood well away from all the tourist stuff on International Drive.

With the Y closed on Sunday, it was nice to have some choices for a Sunday work out. Dover Shores, and several others in the Orlando area, have 'Adult Fitness' hours, aka lap swimming, daily. Check the schedule through the link provided above--just make sure it is pulling current data--I was getting 2014 schedules at first. Wadeview Pool doesn't open until 11 on Sunday for Adult Fitness, and doesn't appear to put the lane ropes in, or there weren't any when I saw it on my way to Dover Shores, but Dover Shores did. They opened at 10 AM on Sunday and I was the only one there.

The pool has lane ropes, stripes, and end-of-lane targets. And it was clean. There are no real changing or locker rooms on site, but the bathrooms served the purpose. It's only 3 feet deep at the shallow end and, being outdoors in central Florida, the water can be very warm, I estimate it was 85º or 86º, as that's the temperature where I have to take my cap off - and it came off early for this work out. As usual in Florida, keep a weather eye, if you're outdoors and it rumbles thunder, they shut down for 30 minutes.

I agree with the first review except the pool was cooler, most likely 82º -83ºF (28ºC), and better for lap swimming. I talked with the guard and he indicated it used to be the warm pool and is now more reasonable. Good staff; winter weekend hours are limited to 10 AM to noon.
