The outdoor swimming pool in the Stavernbusch sports park in Ennigerloh, built in 1939, was in dire need of renovation and was converted into an outdoor pool with biological water treatment. Most of the existing basins were maintained and upgraded. New bathing areas and water attractions were added to increase the attractiveness of the bath. The aim was to create a functional outdoor pool with areas for swimmers, non-swimmers, toddlers, a sandy beach as well as recreational areas and sunbathing lawns.

Biological water treatment is carried out with the help of filter systems, one of which is integrated into the swimmer’s pool as an overflow filter and the other in the pool periphery as a sprinkler filter. The design target for the outdoor pool is a nominal number of 1,100 bathers per day. The water treatment plants are designed for this nominal number of visitors. The Ennigerloh natural swimming pool guarantees great summer enjoyment. There is a climbing wall, water slides, a toddler area with water jugs and floor jets, a diving area and massage jets.

  • Toddler area with source stone, water fountains and watercourse with barrages and sand area (45 m²)
  • Non-swimmer area 600 m²
  • Swimming area (4 x 50 m lanes) and diving area 615 m²

The water is kept at a minimum temperature of 21°C with the help of heat pumps and a solar absorber.
