In 1967 the Flevoparkbad an open air swimming pool was opened on the edge of the Flevopark.
The swimming pool replaced the Municipal swimming pool 'het nieuwe diep'.
The bath in the 'nieuwe diep' was opened in 1905 and closed in the 1960s due to water pollution from rats.
The Flevoparkbad was the first heated swimming pool in Amsterdam in 1967.
A 50 meter pool, a jumping tower with a plank at 1 and 3 meters, a shallow basin of 1800 m2 and a paddling pool.
Surrounded by a large playing field of 2 ha.
The pool was named by the international press as one of the 7 most beautiful outdoor pools in the world.
But in the eighties almost closed due to budget cuts by the municipality of Amsterdam.
The swimming pool was preserved through a successful campaign by the 'Friends of the Flevoparkbad'.
The Flevoparkbad was thoroughly renovated in 1998 and is open from the end of April to September.
