Pay-per-use swimming pools in Singapore

The weather these days is sweltering more often than not. And during the times when the sun is high up in the sky, and there are no clouds or even a breeze, all we want to do is jump into a swimming pool. But if you don’t live in a condo with that amenity, you’re likely considering braving the crowds at ActiveSG pools.

Turns out, there are more swimming spots in Singapore for those who want to get those laps in, or simply take a refreshing dip to escape the heat. We’ve rounded up some pay-per-use swimming pools in Singapore to check out.

– Open to public –

There’s no need to hit up your buddies who live in condos to use their swimming pools. These pay-per-use pools around the island are open to the public.

1. HomeTeamNS Bedok Reservoir – Scenic infinity pool

Swimming Pools in SG - HomeTeamNS Bedok Reservoir

HomeTeamNS Bedok Reservoir’s clubhouse may include an AR arena, gym, and waterpark, but its outdoor swimming pool is what takes the cake. This 50m infinity pool looks out to a panoramic view of Bedok Reservoir. It also has 6 lanes, which is great for those practising for a marathon or triathlon. 

All HomeTeamNS members get free access. However, members of the public can also swim in this picturesque spot from $3.33 from Monday-Friday

If the East is too far for you, HomeTeamNS also has pools at 3 of their other clubhouses: Balestier, Bukit Batok, and Khatib. Similar to the one at Bedok Reservoir, the pools are only open to the public on weekdays.

Rates: $3.33/adult | $1.72/child
Pool opening hours: Fri-Wed 8am-9.30pm | Thu 11am-9.30pm

2. OCBC Aquatic Centre – Not just for Team Singapore athletes

Swimmers looking to set a new personal best can make use of the 18 lanes at the OCBC Aquatic Centre. Better yet, it’s indoors and sheltered from the elements, so don’t worry about your plans getting rained on. 

Besides the pay-per-entry rates, those who need more swim practice can purchase a 30-day swim pass from $40.30 or the 8-visit swim pass from $17.60. The latter gives you 2 free visits, so that’s essentially $1.76/visit.

To make working out more fun, sign up for any of the aqua fitness classes, each with different levels of intensity. Grab a pool noodle and work on your flexibility and conditioning in Aqua Fit Deepwater ($160 for 8 sessions), or stick to the shallower 1.35m end with Aqua Gold ($160 for 8 sessions). The latter is a less intense group workout that focuses on your stamina and balance. 

For the pool schedule, check out Singapore Sports Hub’s website.

Peak: $2.20/adult, $1.10/child
Non-Peak: $2/adult, $1/child
Pool opening hours: Wed-Sun 7am-10pm | Mon 7am-10pm (Closed on Tuesdays)

3.  Safra Choa Chu Kang – Sheltered pool with glass edge
