Jalan Besar Swimming Complex opened its doors to the public on 1st Jun 2003. Although it may go by the name of “Jalan Besar”, it is actually a 10 minute walk from Lavendar MRT station. Although it may be a newer swimming complex as compared to those which opened before year 2000, it doesn’t lack in its facilities. There are the 3 usual pools catering to different groups of students. The wading pool is normally used by toddlers and for playing purposes. The teaching pool is where lessons are conducted for children and beginners. The competition pool are for the more advanced students to do laps. It is the standard size of a 50m Olympic pool.

For parents who are waiting for their child’s lesson to end, you might want to consider visiting City Square Mall. It’s a relatively new mall and Singapore’s first Eco-mall. You can find Metro departmental store here and NTUC Fairprice supermarket. Fashion outlets such as Cotton On, Denizen and Giordano can also be found here. If you’re feeling hungry, you won’t have to worry as there are a total of 3 food courts and many other restaurants. For more information on the store directory, click here.

Although Jalan Besar Swimming Complex might be one of the newer swimming complexes in Singapore, the crowd never fails to show up. Just like the other swimming complexes in Singapore, Jalan Besar Swimming Complex tends to get more crowded over the weekends. The reason is because that more lessons for children are conducted over the weekends. Ideally, we would suggest that you try avoiding the weekends. Instead, head over on a weekday where there isn’t too much of a crowd. Do however, take note that on Wednesdays, the swimming pool only opens at 2.30pm. Hence, if you plan to go for a swim on a Wednesday, ensure that you plan for it after 2.30pm.
