Aquatic centre ‘De Steur’ officially opened
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. Aquatic centre ‘De Steur’ officially opened

The plans for the new swimming pool in the city of Kampen were not only a great chance to realize a modern swimming accommodation, but it also offered a good opportunity to regenerate the green area of the ‘Groene Hart’ from a closed off site into a multifunctional recreational park.
The former ‘Steur’ site is transformed into a large green open space in the park, where the swimming pool, like a villa, overlooks its surroundings. The swimming pool forms a pavilion within the park, integrating the green space and pool into one.
The pool offers a panoramic view over the area. In summertime, the glass facade can be fully opened, in order to link the interior recreational pools with the terrace and outdoor pools. In wintertime, the gates of the lawn are open. This allows the outdoor area of the pool to become part of the recreational route through the park.
