Built in 1996 to serve the residents of Yishun New Town, the Yishun Swimming Pool Complex was officially opened by the then Prime Minister Goh Chok Tong. The complex has been revamped in 2005 as the population in Yishun have by then grown by half the size, the project undertaken by DP Architects (Public Infrastructures).
The new Yishun Swimming Pool Complex comprises a 50m 8 lane Olympic size competition pool with seating capacity of up to 430 pax. There is also a 40m by 30m Teaching Pool and a 20m by 10m Wading Pool (with playground facility) situated near the entrance of the swimming pool complex.
With a mere 700m walk from either Yishun or Khatib MRT station and less than 2km away from Northpoint Shopping Centre, Yishun's Central Town area, it is no wonder Yishun Swimming Pool enjoys an influx of visitors daily, from families, students and young executives, to old folks making use of their SwimFIT 55+ memberships for their morning swim.
