The city of Coronado filled its old 50-meter pool and leveled the building in preparation for a new, state-of-the-art community center which opened in the Summer of 2005.
Down the street from Hotel Del Coronado, the new facility consists of a 52-meter lap pool with a movable bulkhead, a separate warm up and water polo pool with 25-yard lap swimming, a fitness center with first class cardio and strength equipment, a climbing wall, basketball court and locker/shower facilities. Whew! This is the best lap pool facility in North America and we're fortunate that it is our "home" pool.
We especially enjoy swimming here because it runs long course lap swimming often. Times vary throughout the year. We have always urged swimmer friends staying Downtown to drive across the Coronado Bridge to this true Olympic-size pool. And if you are staying at the Hotel Del, it's a no-brainer. $10 will get you access for the day.
