Park
“Since summer 2015, the people of Gothenburg have a new favorite place to cool off on hot days. The pool is located in Frihamnen, on the Hisingen side of the river Göta Älv. It is 20 meters long, 8 meters wide and open to all who want to take a dip. The sauna is situated in the park Jubileumsparken which is part of the city’s quatercentenary in 2021. It was created by German architect collective Raumblabor Berlin and in large parts it’s constructed from recycled material. For instance, the changing rooms were made from 12 000 recycled bottles. In summer the sauna timeslots are drop-in, and the rest of the year you have to book in advance. You can choose between ladies, gentlemen and mixed. And it’s free! Just like the sauna and the sandy beach in the same place, the pool is part of Gothenburg's 400th anniversary in 2021 and has been built as a response to the citizens' desire to get closer to water. The water is cleaned entirely without chlorine and the pool is developed to be socially and ecologically sustainable.”
