Important Notice

Changing Rooms Update

As our customers will be aware, we have recently been experiencing issues with our drainage system which unfortunately necessitated the closure of parts of our swimming and fitness changing rooms while urgent remedial work was carried out. We are delighted to be able to confirm that this issue has now been fully resolved and our changing rooms are all open as normal. Once again we apologise to all our customers for the inconvenience this issue has caused, and thank everyone for their understanding and support. 

Changes in teaching pool opening times

Due to some changes to our pool timetable, as of 26 April our teaching pool will open for public swimming from 10 am on Saturday and Sunday mornings. Please see here for further details.


Due to unforeseen circumstances there will be no weekend Aquarun sessions until further notice.  Apologies for any inconvenience this may cause.

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.
