Private Changing Rooms

Private changing rooms are specifically intended to welcome transgender people (and children), including non-binary people, intersex people (and children), parents of children with disabilities and children who need special assistance and are of a different sex, persons with disabilities with a helper of a different gender, children who assist parents who are of a different sex, and people with health problems, such as people with stomas.

Access

There is a clearly marked “P” parking spot at the end of the building and you have to walk about 16–20 meters to the entrance. The pavement from the parking area is heated. The front door opens automatically and there are no thresholds.

Changing Rooms

The changing rooms are close to the front counter. Changerooms have washrooms with toilet supports and there is a shower chair. The pool is further away from the men's changing rooms than the women's changing rooms.

Pool and Tub Facilities

There are stairs into the pool. There are handrails around the hot tubs and it reaches down with the steps into the tub. The door to the steam room does not open automatically so it can be difficult for wheelchair users to enter, but the steam room is roomy on the inside.

Discounts

Swimming is free for people with disabilities who show a disability card or ITR swimming card, issued by Sjalfsbjorg Association of Physically Disabled People in the capital area.
