Just love going there to hang out and get some rays. Very mixed crowd. Gets packed on a sunny weekend. Great to jump into the river and let yourself drift.

You will not be the only one! safe areas where you can easily jump in, float down and yet have safe exit possibilities on the right side. It's fun and in summer, not uncommon to enjoy 23-25 deg water for cooling down. It's cool!

This river with crystal clear water is used by the city's residents and tourists as a place to swim and picnic beside. It is a great asset that exemplifies the cleanliness of the city and healthy lifestyle habits of its residents.

As far as I know, there are no lockers. People either take turns watching their stuff on land or have a special water sealed bag for their things that can double as a floating device.
