Choa Chu Kang Swimming Complex opened its doors to the public on 1st May 2001. It is considered to be one of the larger swimming complex in Singapore. Many people living in the west, not just Choa Chu Kang alone, will flock over during the weekends either for lessons or leisure. It is such a popular attraction due to the variety of pools available. In total, there are 8 different attractions that children as well as adults can enjoy. This ranges from a toddler pool to a wave pool to a competition pool. For the learners, they will usually occupy the competition pool, which is actually a 50m Olympic size pool.
For parents who are waiting for their child’s lesson to end, you might want to consider visiting the nearby Limbang Shopping Centre. It may not be comparable to your modern day malls, but there are still a few shops to keep you occupied. There are a few learning schools for kids and even a Yamaha Music School where you can pick up a new instrument skill. Aside from that, there’s a coffee shop, McDonald’s and a NTUC Fairprice.
As Choa Chu Kang Swimming Complex is a more happening swimming environment, it isn’t unusual to see big crowds over the weekends. However, a portion of these people aren’t there for lessons, they are simply there to relax and have fun. Hence, it has become one of the more crowded swimming pools over the weekends. Ideally, it would be better if you could avoid the crowd and visit the pool on a weekday instead. This allows you to swim freely and probably have a lane to yourself too. Please be aware that the pool is closed on Mondays, so if you intend to go on a weekday, you can skip Monday.
