Two of the city’s most popular outdoor swimming pools will remain closed once again this summer, much to the chagrin of locals looking for a respite from the summer heat.

Both Hwamyeong and Samrak swimming pools in Buk-gu will remain closed according to the Nakdong River Management Headquarters despite the lifting of social distancing measures.

Both pools have been closed since 2020 due to COVID-19.

The Nakdong River Management Headquarters said that the pools would only be opened if a new private consignment company was found.

Opened in 2012, Hwamyeong offers four pools — a large 2,500 square meter adult pool, an infant pool, and two smaller pools.

The Samrak outdoor swimming pool is located in Samrak-dong, Sasang-gu next to the Samkak Ecological Park Cultural Garden with a total area of ​​3,863 square meters.

It also has a swimming pool, a water lily pool, and a water park playground.
