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For that reason, we ask for your help: If any of the information in the listing is incorrect, out of date, or could be improved, please tell us.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

Very good for lane swimming…
Designed to catch the eye by people who knew little about swimming and swimming pools: No ledges to stand on at the ends of the racing pool; insufficient spectator seating; the lane ropes hang down from the poolside; poolside and changing room tiles are slippery-when-wet; and use of the changing room lockers forces one to block the narrow corridor leading to the pool, etc. In short, a stylish, glittering MESS!
This is my 'home' pool - a super nice, large and light pool that's crowded only on the weekends. Weekday busiest times are from 9 to 11 AM or so, after that, until about 3.30 PM, there are very few people there. After-school swimming lessons are held in one of the lanes beginning around 3:30, which means there is one lane fewer for lap swimming, but it's still not very crowded. It's a big pool, nice width lanes (and a nice gym upstairs too). The reviewer above who complained about there being no spectator seating sound like s/he mistakenly swam in the training pool next door, and not in the main pool. The main pool has a huge spectator area and none of the issues described in that review. The two pool are next to each other, but each has its own dressing room so, if you've entered into the wrong dressing room, it's probably easy to end up in the smaller, training pool.
