Yishun Swimming Complex is a pool in the north of Singapore. It is at the top of the city, near the city center. Yishun Swimming Complex is a public swimming pool that Sport Singapore runs.
The swimming pool has basic facilities for swimmers to use daily for training and fun.
In 1976, the first few HDB buildings were built in the Chong Pang area. Yishun’s growth began then. Still, do you remember the Chong Pang nasi lemak you ate? Here, you can get food and go after swimming lessons. This is one place to go.
“Yishun” was a direct translation of Mr. Lim Nee Soon, who used to be a banker, contractor, and commission agent. There were pineapple and rubber plantations in that area that he used to own, and he made a lot of money there.
As for history, the Yishun swimming complex is an old swimming complex. It opened on March 30, 1988, and people from the north have used it ever since. There will be a pool here in about 12 years. It took about that long for this area to be built.
Though the pool is old, the swimming facilities in the complex are managed and maintained regularly to keep the service level the same. In addition, it is located near a lot of housing estates, which makes it easy for people who are active to get to the pool in a short amount of time.
Around the Yishun swimming pool, Yishun Junior College, Khatib camp, and Khoo Teck Puat Hospital are all nearby.
You can find food centers all over Yishun, like the Chong Pang Nasi Lemak. There are also some good finger foods and vending machines at the entrance to help people get a quick meal after swimming hard.
Yishun Park Hawker Center is a modern hawker center with 43 hawker stalls that serve a wide variety of traditional and fusion food. It opened in 2017 and has 43 stalls. Some of the foods may also be good to try before or after swimming at this place.
Swimmers who are training for swimming competitions can use the open competition pool at the Yishun Swimming Complex all day long to work on their strokes and learn to swim more effectively and efficiently.
This is where you can do tanning in the afternoon after swimming hard. The complex has a lot of space for tanning.
There is a shallow pool of 1m in-depth to help people learn how to swim and practice for building confidence and improving horizontal swimming position such as star float.
