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For that reason, we ask for your help: If any of the information in the listing is incorrect, out of date, or could be improved, please tell us.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

This is a new pool that replaced the old 20 meter, 4 lane tank in March, 2017.
There are at least three, but not more than eight lanes available for lap swimming at all times.
If you'll be in Jerusalem for more than a few days, you may want to check out the Y's Price List page for information about multiple-visit passes and short-term membership opportunities.

Facility Reviews

This is a very good facility. The change rooms are YMCA grungy, the pool a little warm, but very clean. The pool has 10 lanes; some lanes are often closed for other activities, some open for laps with speed markers. People have been polite and tried to stay in the speed lane, and everyone agrees to split or circle. The pool is open at 6 AM, except on Saturdays, and has a lot of lap hours. Note: There are women-only hours in pool schedule.

Bring your own lock and a towel. They have showers, and the pool area has a hot tub and dry sauna, too. It's very well lit.

If you choose the monthly membership option you have access to the gym and classes which are extensive - the gym is superb. Car parking is 300NIS a month in the lot beside the Y. If you don't pay, street parking is around but - it's Jerusalem, so good luck.
