“Place to be in sunny day”
Reviewed August 5, 2014

An alternative to Hietaniemi and other beaches. Easy to reach and spacious facility both for swimming and hanging out in the sun. Walking distance from tram stops and easily reachable by bicycle. Used to be a potato storage during the WW2.

“Old-time charm”
Reviewed June 27, 2014

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. There are kiosks both outside and inside the area. Jumping platforms and one water slide. This is hugely popular when the weather is warm but I recommend visiting it when during rainy days. Then there are less people and the water feels so warm.

“Adventurous Day”
Reviewed October 12, 2013

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. I bought one from the front desk for really cheap and headed straight to the pool. I spend hours going off the platforms and diving boards, This was a perfect stop for me indeed.
