Edinburgh Leisure Network

Welcome to Royal Commonwealth Pool

Important Notice


Due to a Water Polo Competition the main pool will close at 12.00 on the Saturday and re-open on Monday 24 October at 05.30. The diving pool programme will also be affected, however the teaching pool and our other facilities will be open as normal throughout. Please see our holiday pool programme for full details of public swimming times. 

Car parking is likely to be limited.  Apologies for any inconvenience.

Sitting in the shadow of the spectacular Arthur's Seat on Dalkeith Road, the 'Commie Pool' is so much more than Edinburgh's only 50 metre pool.

We're proud to offer a wide range of modern health and fitness activities for all the family in our fantastically refurbished venue. The City of Edinburgh Council's £37m redevelopment has revitalised this light and airy 1960s building and given it a brand new lease of life. If you haven't been to visit, we'd love to show you around.
