Aztec Aquaplex at SDSU

5375 Remington Road
San Diego, CA 92182
Area: Mission Bay/Hotel Circle

This $12MM outdoor facility opened in March 2007 and is the venue used by the university's aquatic teams during the school year (during non-practice times you'll often see many co-eds lounging in the SoCal sun). Swimmers should be impressed by the competition-quality 50-meter lap pool (typically set up as 25-yard short course and kept at 80F), a recreational pool (floating lounge chairs are available with water temp at 83F), and a spa (20-person hot tub).

Showers are conveniently located on the pool deck. Lockers are available, but the changing areas accumulate standing water (bad design) on the concrete floor. In true college fashion, overhead plasma televisions hang inside the locker room.

Check the website for a location map. Also, since it's a university pool, call to confirm lap swim hours before heading over. It costs $12 for a day pass to swim at the SDSU pool. SDSU students are $6.

Parking spaces are limited in the "R" lot--buy a temporary permit from a machine in the lot ($1/hour). Otherwise, call the pool when you plan to head over and ask their opinion on the best place to park. Although we categorize this pool in "Mission Bay/Hotel Circle", SDSU is an approximate 10-minute drive from the heart of Mission Valley and Hotel Circle along Interstate 8.
