The validity of 120-day season passes, monthly cards and multi-visit cards at the City of Helsinki’s sports service swimming halls and sports halls will be extended for the amount of time that the facilities were closed.


Helsinki Culture and Leisure Division services closed until further notice

The services of City of Helsinki Culture and Leisure Division (libraries, library buses, cultural centres, museums, youth centres and all indoor sports facilities) will be closed from Wednesday March 18th. The Culture and Leisure Division is looking for alternative ways to produce cultural, library and sports services and youth services. The people who are now staying at home, need more things to do, support, joy and shared experiences. More information

Public pool facilities

In addition to swimming halls, Helsinki has dozens of public pool facilities. All public facilities are monitored by the Environmental Health Unit of Environmental Services. Inspections are performed at public pool premises and water samples are taken regularly.

With regard to private pool facilities (such as housing association pools only used by residents), the operator is in charge of ensuring that there are no health hazards to the pool users.

You can contact the Environmental Health Unit if you need advice or would like to report a hygiene or health hazard at pool facilities.
