If you are serious about swimming then this famous pool, where South African Olympians and Iron Man competitors come to eat up the laps, is the top choice. There are in fact three pools, the heated Olympic pool, the kiddies splash pool and the more serene 'grown-ups' pool. The main pool is divided up into lanes and a free-for-all open area which is usually packed with local kids who come to splash about all day long during the summer. Unlike many Joburg pools the changing rooms have lockers where you can put your belongings (bring your own padlock) and there's a small tuck shop selling soft drinks and snacks.
Open 08:00–16:00, Sat, Sun 09:00–16:00.
