Outdoor swimming pool, originating from year 1940 and was used in Helsinki Olympics on 1952. Spacious, clean locker rooms. There's also a gym downstairs.

Then there are... More

Let's start off by saying I might be a little biased on this review. I love watching and following anything to do with swimming history. When visited I didn't even think to bring a suit.

The season is reasonably long (May to September) and the serial flash-in ticket is very convenient without being overpriced. Vault jumping and waterrunning are also well arranged.

Good place to have fun in the sun! Always clean and nice athmosphere. Jumping towers to 1-5m. Located some distance from the center, but every local knows this place so you probably will find it anyway

An outdoor swimming pool open during summer months (may-september). Great place to spend a warm day with family and friends on having a bit of sport and making a picnic on the grass that surrounds the pool. I recommend bringing your own food as there are not any good options available at the stadium. It can get crowded on hot... More

The water temperature was nice, even though it was a bit cold and windy outside. The kids pool was totally crowded. There were two playgrounds there for kids. There is also the 50 meter pool and the jumping boards.
