Best place for swimmers in Saint John. Virtually any time the facility is open, one can swim at least 25m if not 50m lengths and rarely have to share a lane.

I arrived here for a three day swim meet. After camping in the pedway for three days I must say I enjoyed my time in Saint John. The pool is very close to all things uptown including hotels.

This was by far my best pool experience, I loved the waterslide and the tower to jump from, and the humungous pool. There was so much to do! I was never bored.

The average person has to wade around large groups who seem to feel they own the pool on weekend morning. Don't go there to swim inthe morning on weekends unless you want to be told where you can swim that will not interrupt their social...More
