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For that reason, we ask for your help: If any of the information in the listing is incorrect, out of date, or could be improved, please tell us.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

It's filthy! I have never seen such a dirty change/shower/pool facility. It really is disappointing!
It’s not so much “filthy” as old and run-down:
There are no working lockers in the change rooms.
There’s only one shower, so it is co-ed.
The facility is cold, both in and out of the water.
It's disappointing that in a nice, old, affluent neighbourhood like the Beach, such a dirty and worn-out facility could exist. It's time to build something new and modern here.

The place seems quite well maintained to me, with some dust on the elevated tile behind the dressing benches, at most. Old? It was built before metric, so yes. It's a school facility being shared by the city, so there's a fair bit of complexity in trying to get it updated. Don't bother with the lockers. Take your stuff into the pool area with you, everyone else does. My biggest complaint is about not being able to take my swimsuit off in the co-ed showers.

The locker rooms are super warm; the pool area slightly less, so the water feels a little cool when you get in but, if you are there for a workout, you will be more than warm enough within the first lap or two.

I agree that it's more of an old facility than dirty. The change room is small and designed for a junior public school. It would be nice to have separate showers instead of co-ed. Otherwise the pool serves its purpose.

They really need to clean the changing rooms and get the lockers working. And when I say clean, I mean scrub that place top to bottom.
