    Swimming pools don't have borders, this sentence wouldn't make sense! People might understand your meaning but it would be better to say 'side'.

    You could also say She walked to the edge of the swimming pool and jumped in.

    "Border" is correct, but is not normally used and sounds weird. "Side" is also correct and better than "border", but is still a little weird. "Edge" would be the most common, as Rachel said. Or you can say "I walked up to the swimming pool and jumped in".
