Good news, going by this link, they are turning it in to a leisure centre.
Learned to swim there as a boy and it was a Saturday morning ritual queing up to get in for a half hour slot.
The 'deep end ' was just over 6 ft if I remember right.
If you forgot your trunks you could hire a pair, and if the water was too cold you could sit in the hot bath in the shower room !


Great memories from the late '60's.

I absolutely loved the Maryhill Swimming Baths and spent loads of time there. Cameron - did you know a Margaret Dickson who was in the Neptune Swimming Club? She was a terrific swimmer. I sat my bronze life saving medal when I was at North Kelvinside school and got a free pass for a year to Maryhill Baths. Boy did I use it - I was there nearly every day. I also lost a finger nail when, getting ready to dive in, someone shut the cubicle door on my hand. I hated these wee cubicles, you never felt as if there was much privacy in them but many a happy time I spent in these baths. Also used to go for a hot bath every Friday night.

MHG, I remember the wee doors on the cubicles as well, you are right no much left to the imagation unsure.gif I loved going to the baths tae, but after my Aunty Cathy tried to drown me ( she swore it was teaching me to hold my breath) I never got back ino the pool, still canny swim to this day. but I'd go there with pals and sit and wait for them if I remember you could swim for half an hour for sixpence or something wink.gif
