Jurong West Swimming Complex opened its doors to the public in November 2006. The nearest MRT station to the complex is Pioneer, which is a 15 minute walk away. This complex offers a range of pools for both lessons and leisure. In total, there are 5 pools and a slide available. Just like other swimming complexes, lessons for beginners are normally conducted at the teaching pool. As students progress further, they will then proceed to the competition pool, which is a 50m Olympic size pool. The good thing about this swimming complex is that their competition pool is sheltered. This means that even when it is raining, it is still possible for lessons to continue.
For parents who are waiting for their child’s lesson to end, you might want to consider visiting Pioneer Mall. It’s a rather small complex, but it can satisfy your basic needs. The most prominent shop has to be Giant Hypermarket, where you can possibly shop for your daily needs. Aside from that, there’s a McDonald’s to help fill your stomach and a few salons that offer haircuts. Other than that, there is a foot reflexology shop to ease those muscles of yours.
Considering that despite the rain, lessons still carry on, it is highly likely that many people come here. Hence, the weekends are usually packed with students as well as swimmers doing their laps. Apart from that, there are others who come here to enjoy the lazy river, Jacuzzi or kids pool. Therefore, if you prefer a less crowded environment to swim in, it is recommended that you visit the complex on a weekday instead. However, do take note that Jurong West Swimming Complex is closed every Tuesdays. Thus, ensure that you plan your schedule well and do not go on a Tuesday.
