There are loads of public swimming pools in Singapore. I live in the Tiong Bahru area and my nearest is Delta Swimming Complex near Redhill MRT station. Is has an olympic-sized pool which is clean and never really busy.

The pools are all outside, which is great, and have sunloungers too for when you need a break to top up the tan.

The cost of the above pool, for example, is $1 on a week day and $1.30 on a weekend or public holiday. REALLY good value!!! And it costs just 20 cents for a locker.

At my local pool you don't even have to speak to anyone, you pay at a machine to go in and that's it. Brilliant.

Almost all mature housing estates in Singapore have as public accessible swimming complex. Most of these complexes actually have two or three pools. One is very shallow for children and then a deeper one for everybody else.

As noted by carolinemain, they are very cheep at a buck or a buck thirty per entry/day and lots of them have automated entry machines as well.

I personally, use both the one at Ang Mo Kio (near the Yio Chu Kang MRT) or the Kovan pool on Yio Chu Kang Road near Serangoon North.

Map of swimming pools in Singapore : http://tinyurl.com/singpools :D :D

Pretty cheap, pretty well organized and the water is pretty clean.

Showers, lockers and places to change clothes could be definitely cleaner, neater.

There is no swimming etiquette whatsoever, so if you are a lap swimmer, you can get kind of frustrated.

Other than that, I think the swimming pools in Singapore are great, plenty, convenience, affordable.

If you choose to live in a condo, there would most probably be a swimming pool within the condo premises. It is private and only for condo residents. Unless residents invite guests and they use the pool as well. If you are a swimmer looking to do laps and real exercise, check out the pool before you sign the rental lease for the condo unit, as some condo pools are tiny and more like a pool meant for playing rather than serious exercise.
