During summertime the best places for aquatic activities are the Kupittaa Outdoor Swimming Arena and the Samppalinna Outdoor Swimming Stadium. Kupittaa is the long time favourite of families with children. Samppalinna offers excellent facilities for fitness swimmers as well.
You can do self-directed aqua jogging in all indoor and outdoor swimming pools and beaches maintained by Turku City. Instructed aqua jogging is available at Impivaara Swimming Hall.
Aqua jogging belts can be borrowed free of charge in: Impivaara Swimming Centre, Petrelius Swimming Hall, Kupittaa and Samppalinna Outdoor Swimming Arenas.
You can use your own clean aqua jogging belt in indoor and outdoor swimming pools. At beaches you must have your own aqua jogging belt with you.
The Impivaara Swimming Centre and the Petrelius Swimming Hall offer a wide range of opportunities for water exercise and working out in the gym. They also offer water aerobics classes and other types of organised sports. The swimming pools are closed during a part of summer, at which time it is possible to swim in the Kupittaa Outdoor Swimming Arena and the Samppalinna Outdoor Swimming Stadium.
