This page describes how to gain entry to the indoor swim pool on the Northside within Pittsburgh Public Schools’ Oliver High School, now called Oliver Citywide Academy.
Oliver’s pool is 6-lanes, 25-yards long with nice deck space. Lane lines, starting blocks, and deck-level locker-room facilities exist. The balcony has been closed to spectators. Lighting, paint and showers are not ideal, but the water has always been great. The gutters are perfect for SKWIM’s slot-style game. Coach brings in the AutoCoach pace clocks / scoreboard. Some kickboards and fins are available.
Saturday Swim School happens at Oliver High School.
Oliver High School is NOT the same as the Oliver Bath House. Both are public indoor swim pools but are in different locations in Pittsburgh. PPS Oliver High School is on the Northside. Meanwhile, Oliver Bath House is on the city’s South Side and is operated by Citiparks.
Finding the swim pool on the weekend when most of the school is locked is easy once you navigate the insights here.
