Synthesis of the case study

Islands Brygge Harbour Baths is one of the most popular outdoor swimming spots in Copenhagen and part of the four public Harbour Baths in the main canal. There are five pools in all, two of which are specifically for children and diving towers of 1, 3 and 5m. In the summertime lifeguards overview the facilities and also check water quality. Rather than imitating the indoor swimming bath, the Harbour Bath offers an urban harbour landscape with dry docks, piers, boat ramps, buoys, playgrounds and pontoons. There is a lawn in front of the pool where you find lots of room for sun bathing, picnics, ball games. During the colder months, there is a local winter bathing club using the facilities.
