Co-Curricular Activities Branch Swimming Complex opened its doors to the public since 1990. This swimming complex is actually situated in the School of Physical Education, which is in Bukit Timah area. Therefore, there are some that address it as “Bukit Timah Swimming Complex”. Hence, for clarification purposes, Co-Curricular Activities Branch Swimming Complex and Bukit Timah Swimming Complex are actually the same. What’s important for you to take note of is that the facilities are open to the public only outside the school’s curriculum hours. Therefore, the schedule is very much different compared to other public swimming complexes. Another thing that you should be aware of is that sometimes the pool is used for competitions, which also means that it is closed for public usage.
For parents who are waiting for their child’s lesson to end, you might want to consider visiting Coronation Shopping Plaza. It is rather out of the way though if you’re not driving. Although it may seem like a pretty run down building, there are still quite a few places to hang out such as Starbucks and Delifrance. Aside from cafes, there is also a NTUC Fairprice supermarket and a few restaurants like Swiss Butchery and Xin Wang. It is only advisable to visit this place if you’re driving as it isn’t very near to the swimming complex.
Although there are only 2 pools here compared to the usual 3, there aren’t as many people. The reason is because most people are unaware that this pool is open to the public at certain timings. We would strongly recommend you to give a call to the swimming complex before making a trip down for your swimming session. Your safest bet would definitely be on a Sunday, but remember to always call and check just in case they have other activities going on.
