Geylang East Swimming Complex opened its doors to the public on 1st Aug 1978 and is one the oldest swimming complex in Singapore. Although it’s named “Geylang East”, the swimming complex is actually located within Aljunied. Although it might not be as modern as other swimming complexes, it doesn’t fall short of standards. Just like any other public swimming complex in Singapore, it has the 3 basic swimming pools. This includes a competition pool, a teaching pool and a wading pool. The teaching pool is usually used for children and beginners. When the instructor feel that the student is ready, they will progress to the competition pool. The competition pool is the normal 50m Olympic size pool.
For parents who are waiting for their child’s lesson to end, you might want to consider visiting Tanjong Katong Complex. It doesn’t look like your traditional shopping malls and in fact, looks pretty old from its exterior. However, you’ll be surprised to find certain shops here. Firstly, there is a Shop N Save supermarket for your groceries shopping. There is also a food court, bakery and even a bubble tea shop. Aside from that, there are curtain shops and even interior design shops. There’s also a travel agency and a few fashion shops.
Geylang East Swimming Complex is not the most “popular” swimming complex of all. Nonetheless, there are still many children that go there for lessons during the weekends. It would probably not be as crowded as the more modern pools, but it might still be a challenge if you’re looking to maneuver about. It would be more advisable to visit the pool on a weekday instead, when not as many lessons are being conducted. However, do take note that the pool only opens at 2.30pm on Mondays.
