Hongkou Outdoor Swimming Pool was built in 1922, and was one of the earliest public swimming pools in Shanghai. 

The swimming pool is 53 meters long and 20 meters wide. When it was first built, the swimming pool was roofless. In 2003, a big shade was added to prevent too much sunshine. 

Now, this 95 year old outdoor swimming pool is a favorite among local residents. Not only does it provide a place to cool off in the summer months, but during the winter the pool is frozen over and transformed into an ice skating rink. A great spot for year-round family fun.

In 2017, Hongkou Outdoor Swimming Pool  will reopen from 9am to 9pm daily through to August 27 after a major renovation.
