The Flevoparkbad is a great outdoor swimmingpool in Amsterdam!
2,5 acres (4 hectare) of parkland with an Olympic sized (50 meter) pool for swimming laps or training (150 cm-350 cm deep), an equally sized shallow pool (40 cm-150 cm deep) for children and a special pool for toddlers.
The water is heated. Large meadows for sunbathing or relaxing in the shade of trees, playground, sport facilities, and a cafetaria. Plenty of lockers to leave your valuables.
Be welcome and enjoy!
The Friends of Flevoparkbad (Vrienden van het Flevoparkbad) aim to preserve this pool as an public open air swimming pool. That’s what this website is about. The owner, the city of Amsterdam has recently changed its mind on closing down the pool and selling off the grounds for profit thanks to the activities of the Friends. We discovered and could explain that the so called “loss” on the pool was exaggerated. And to be frank: isn’t this just a lovely green area that’s worth preserving? We invested enormous effort and that achieved results: the local government has chosen to invest in the pool to improve it after years of neglect. We could prove to the local governement that the Flevoparkbad has a lot of fans. Yet the future of the Flevoparkbad as an open air swimming pool is not secured. If you are a fan too, as we hope, whether you are a tourist or an expat, let us know.
