The New Leppävaara Pool

I have finally visited the refurbished Leppävaara swimming pool centre. Generally, a very positive experience! So many new pools!

The old space for changing rooms and saunas is still in the same place, just refurbished. The old main pool and children's pool are still there. But they've built a new space for jacuzzis, cold pool, small children's pool and a general-purpose play/therapy pool. And amazingly, I was staring at a wall from the therapy pool, thinking that I'm seeing a reflection of the main pool. But no, there's another 25 pool now, and jumping platforms up to 5 meters. Nice done!

The only complaints I'd have is that first, half of the showers on men's side don't seem to work. Crappy high tech showers :-) And second, the space between the showers and the saunas is so narrow that it is difficult for people to move around, particularly when there are a lot of people. Otherwise, perfect!
