The UK is getting its first natural swimming pool, or “man-made bathing pond” as they like to call it. Located at a redevelopment site in London, and called “Of Soil and Water”.
No chemicals or biocides will be used to clean the pool Instead the pool will be filtered with wetland filtration in a closed-loop system.
It looks like a beautiful project as it has grasses and wildflowers that change with the seasons.
They really wanted to promote the awareness of how important our water and soil are. Which we often times take for granted.
The pool will help people experience our responsibility and relationship with nature.
