EXPEDITION 1: Neerpede / Grande Étang de la Pede

Friday 19.07.2019 and Saturday 20.07.2019


The first expedition to the Neerpede pond is behind us and we can say that we achieved something extraordinary: The first official open air swimming in Brussels since more than 40 years! We are sure it will leave its mark in the future …
Such nice days, happy faces all around and even the little bit of rain couldn’t stop you from swimming. We are extremely grateful for all the people who made this happen, from our team to all the involved administrations, from politicians to project partners that delivered excellent service, from all the selfless volunteers to you and everyone who came for a swim. Thank you very very very much! These are pictures from the beginning of construction to the very end, with lots of fun and pleasure in between.

But this was only the beginning of EXPEDITION SWIM! There are two more weekends to come, 27.+28.07. at Bois de la Cambre and 03.+04.08. at Pêcheries Royales, each day from noon until 6 pm. Besides the online inscription we can guarantee that there are always places free for a swim, so even if you decide to join last minute, don’t worry. See you in the water!
