Aquatic centre ‘De Steur’ officially opened
12 January 2017
On Wednesday, January 11, aquatic centre ‘De Steur’ in Kampen is officially opened! After an amazing demonstration of the diving association, Alderman Geert Meijering symbolically handed-over the key to Sportfondsen Kampen B.V., which will exploit the complex. De Steur already opened to the public at 2 January.
De Steur contains three pools; a multipurpose pool with a deepened part for the diving association, a 6-lane competition pool, and a kiddy pool with a 50m flume. Outside you can find the terrace, paddling pools and a sunbathing lawn. In summertime, the glass facade can be fully opened, in order to link the interior recreational pools with the terrace and outdoor pools.
The former ‘Steur’ site is transformed into a large green open space in the park, where the swimming pool, like a villa, will overlook its surroundings. The swimming pool forms a pavilion within the park, integrating the green space and pool into one.
