Clarke Memorial Swim Center


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For that reason, we ask for your help: If any of the information in the listing is incorrect, out of date, or could be improved, please tell us.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

There are not enough lanes reserved for laps; most are taken by teams and summer camps. To avoid crowded lanes come in late morning or in the evening when the pool is reserved just for laps. The locker rooms are not always the cleanest.
No reservations needed anymore, and no more time limits! Long course in the mornings :-D
[June, 2021]
The setting is lovely, in a park surrounded by trees. The staff were very welcoming and helpful to me as a first-time visitor. In the morning, three groups of Masters swimmers rotated in and out; although I swam on my own it was apparent the program was well run and the coach cared about his swimmers. Three lanes were available for lap swimming in 50m and at most I was one of three swimmers in my lane.
