Ringkøbing Swimming Centre, built in 1977, was of the traditional design with a 25-meter pool and a smaller children and toddlers play pool. The Swimming Centre has been given new life through a refurbishment, with new pools and play areas, a climbing wall, a water parkour course, an illuminated cave and a new mezzanine with a 150 m2 multi-purpose room with panoramic views of Ringkøbing Fjord.
The centre has also been augmented with a Turkish bath, saunas and massage rooms, and the local swimming club now has better conditions in which to provide swimming lessons.
The renovations have encompassed the pool area, water treatment and changing rooms, and energy and environmental solutions have been incorporated to make the centre more eco-friendly.
