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For that reason, we ask for your help: If any of the information in the listing is incorrect, out of date, or could be improved, please tell us.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

The facility was a bit run down but clean. They have a 50m pool. It appears that for normal swimming days they divide it into two 25m pools to provide more room for different activities. Lockers with keys are provided, bring a quarter to use them. There is a kiddie pool in the back and a steam room, which is quite nice for relaxing after your workout. Bottom line: The place will not win a prize for interior design but it's great for lap swimming.

I recently stayed with friends in Saint John and I swam here. My son used the gym. Thumbs up to both! The location and hours are excellent. I seek out pools for exercise wherever I am - and this one hit the spot. To be honest, the women's shower and change area is a bit tired and quite basic; it could do with an overhaul, but that's only a minor complaint. The 50m pool was divided half way, so laps were 25m, but that's quite OK.

I swam here in 2018. The locker rooms were dated, plane, simple, but adequate, with gang showers. I had a good swim. It's a wonderful location and a gem that needs sprucing up. Within easy walking distance from the cruise port and downtown.
