Indoor pools are generally open year-round but might be unavailable for guest use when there are lessons or birthday parties happening. We’ve used reader feedback, team experience, and research to find the best indoor swimming pool in the Fox Valley.

The Appleton YMCA is one of six branches of the YMCA of the Fox Cities, located in Downtown Appleton. This location has two pools – a larger 25 meter pool with six lanes, The Guardian Pool and a heated smaller pool – The Boldt Pool. The Guardian Pool is great for more confident swimmers, lap swimming, diving and treading water.
