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For that reason, we ask for your help: If any of the information in the listing is incorrect, out of date, or could be improved, please tell us.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

There's always at least one lane, and often two or three wide lanes, available for lane/lap swimming, leaving plenty of room for recreational swimmers, too.
There is a 50m x 18m, 7 lane, heated, 24º - 26ºC (75º - 78ºF) outdoor, seasonal pool at this location. It's open from the end of May to the 2nd week in September. When open, there's always an almost double width lane available for lane/lap swimming.

Facility Reviews

A regular (since 1968) patron of the facility writes: We "lap swimmers" are indeed lucky to enjoy this great facility and grateful to the Management and local Council for providing it. Long may it continue!
The outdoor pool is a wonderful place. There are always two lanes to swim in. The water is warm and clean. The setting is lovely, with beautiful flower beds. There are plenty of chairs and sunbeds, a decent cafe and changing facilities. The staff are friendly, as are the swimmers. A great place to spend some time and a to have a good swim. We are so lucky to have this pool!
