West Side Family YMCA


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For that reason, we ask for your help: If any of the information in the listing is incorrect, out of date, or could be improved, please tell us.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 Y also has a Facebook page.
As noted in the April, 2019, review below, this YMCA is building a new aquatic center. The original plans called for a year-round, indoor/outdoor pool, but a fund-raising shortfall necessitated a cut back in the plans and the new 25 yard, 10 lane pool will be outdoors only. We understand that the Y hopes to keep the new pool open beyond the summer season. The indoor pool remains and will remain open. You can read more about it HERE. [October, 2019]

Facility Reviews

The indoor pool is kept warm, usually around 85ºF. The locker rooms were rebuilt in 2000 and are very nice. The indoor pool was rebuilt during the summer of 2002.
The indoor pool is a warm one - 86ºF (30ºC) on two occasions, so it's not comfortable for laps. The shallow end is quite shallow, so tuck your turns and don’t be surprised to sweep the floor if your stroke goes deep. The men’s locker room is small and crowds with more than three or four folks. Otherwise, the location is convenient, near a nice park if you want to add a short run. A new aquatic center is in the plans and will be a welcome improvement.
