    Registration to swim in three bodies of water in Brussels this summer is now open.

    Pool is Cool, an organisation advocating for open-air swimming in Brussels, is organising outdoor swims during three weekends this summer. These weekends are part of a test program for open-air swimming in Brussels, reports Bruzz.

    Swimmers can sign up to test the waters on 19-20 July at Neerpede, 27-28 July at Bois de la Cambre, and 3-4 August at Les Pêcheries

    The organisers have announced that swimming will only be available on those set weekends and only in a 25 meters by 25 meters section of the water. Individual swimmers are allowed in the water for no more than a half-hour to let as many people swim as possible.

    Anyone interested in swimming during these weekends can register here.
