I live in SLC. I'm looking for an indoor 50-meter pool. I don't mind driving up to 1 hour. Do you have any idea?

Minie......There are only two 50 meter indoor pools in Utah that I know exist. The closest one is in the Provo/Orem area and the other is in Ceder City at SUU. The Orem Recreation center pool is about 45 minutes to 1 hour away from downtown Salt Lake City. There are several outdoor 50 meter pools in the Salt Lake City area, but of course that isn't what you are looking for.

I've heard rumors that SLCC (Salt Lake Community College) and the City of South Jordan are trying to build a 50 meter pool out in there area of town. The Salt Lake County Recreation Department continually builds new aquatic facilities, but none are planned to have a 50 meter pool. Maybe one day our tax dollars will go toward a well planned and programmed facility here in our great valley, instead of the small poorly run facilities we continue to build.

Sorry for my soap box babble, but I just had to say it!!!

I believe Dennis is correct. However, do look into the indoor pool up at Jeremy Ranch. It might be 50m. I have not swam in it since 1999 and am not 100% sure. It is inside a $$$ middle school.

I am surprised that the University of Utah has a huge natatorium with two 25m pools inside instead of one 50m pool. There is even space for expansion to the south where a 50m could be put in.
