Too hot for wandering around in town? Then take a dip in one of these outdoor swimming pools!
Noorderparkbad: At the pool fair ''Piscine Global'' in Lyon it was voted most beautiful swimming pool of the globe because of the wooden architecture and lush meadow that make a perfect transition from inside to outside. In addition, sustainability was a focus point of this pool, it uses 75% less energy than the previous pool that was located in the area! This is a pool worthwhile checking out.
Flevoparkbad: The large sunbathing areas are perfect for hours of relaxation and the large deep outdoor swimming pool invites you for a dip. There are also plenty of facilities for children: shallow pool with playground and water slide, a toddler bath, table tennis and table football. In 2015, Flevopark bath was rated best 'Best Outdoor Pool of Amsterdam' by Parool.
De Mirandabad: A 50 meter long pool for swimming and big green meadows for relaxing... What more could you ask for? Ok, there's more: a children's pool, divided into toddler and toddler grounds. In the middle of the shallow part is a playground in the form of a pirate ship which means kids will have the time of their life.
WARNING: Pit digging is not appreciated on the meadows. Save that desire for the beach. Looking for a nice beach in Amsterdam? Check this out.
