Summer’s right upon us, and there seems to be no respite from the crucifying heat and humidity. And what better way to cool off than taking a nice dip in the pool with friends and family alike. “But wait? Don’t I need a membership of sort to go swimming at those posh club pools or something?”
Well, don’t you fret anymore for we have a list of all the places you can go swimming in Kolkata without a membership; yeah for real!
Read on… Rather just giddy-up your swimsuits and swimming trunks and go swimming already!
Lake Land Country Club
Situated off the Kona Expressway, Lake Land Country Club is one place set amidst the greens and away from the cacophony of the city to help you chill in peace. And yes, you do need to be a member of this country club to access its other facilities but NOT the swimming pool.

Not too far away from the city is the Spring Club located just off E.M. Bypass. With its posh residential and commercial complexes juxtaposed with numerous clubs and restaurants, Spring Club turns out to be one of the Uber-cool places to chill out this summer. The swimming pools are open to non-members for a sum of money, and the best part is you have some really good restaurants to satiate those post-swimming hunger pangs.
