The Cotta outdoor pool in the west of Dresden is popular with all age groups and has a 620 square meter stainless steel pool for bathing fun, including three 25-meter lanes. The little bathing guests have their own paddling pool. Sun worshippers will find a nice spot on the large sunbathing lawn. The playground makes children’s hearts beat faster, as does the wide slide and the water mushroom. For “water bombs” and “pike” there is a three-meter tower and a one-meter diving board. In the year of its 100th anniversary, the Cotta outdoor pool was reopened in 2013 after it had been extensively renovated.
