Swimming lanes have opened at Lake Harku in Tallinn's Haabersti district and will be open until the end of the summer.
The Haabersti district government organized the building of the 25-meter long outdoor pool by the beach of Lake Harku. The average water depth is 1.6 meters.
The pool has three swimming lanes with push walls attached to floating berths for convenient turning and is connected to the shore by a wooden bridge.
Along with the construction of a recreation area by Lake Harku, it is planned to build lighting and paved footpaths in the future.
