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For that reason, we ask for your help: If any of the information in the listing is incorrect, out of date, or could be improved, please tell us.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 change rooms and bathrooms are usually dirty. It's scary filthy and really sad.
The change rooms are as clean as any other pool I’ve been to. This pool is many years older than the other pools in the city and may appear less clean than it really is.
I agree with the first review of the centre. The bathroom and the shower room are dirty every day. There’s also lots of debris in the pool: paint from the pool walls, bandages, rubber bands, etc. This is not a safe and healthy environment.
As the oldest pool facility in the city, it is the biggest and has plenty of options for your swimming level. The change rooms are older but anytime I have been there (many times in the past 20 years) I have not found it to be any worse than any other pool, unless its during the leisure times, when there are generally more children around. Otherwise it's an OK place to go.

With recent renovations, the change rooms are clean and really nice now. The air quality also seems to have improved, since the recent renovations (fingers crossed it stays that way!)

I have recently moved to the city and started using Lawson right away. I was concerned at first because of the reviews, but I found the place to be the exact opposite. The change rooms/showers were very clean (I have been in pool facilities for 20+years). The pools themselves and the rest of the facility are well above standard.
