A place worth spending the whole day, so be sure to bring a packed lunch! There are lovely green areas to lie in the sun and for the children to play.
About the swim spot
By the big area near the swim spot, there is space for activities as well as relaxation. With good barbecue areas and a beach volleyball net, it’s the perfect spot to unwind on a wonderful summer day in good company. The area has a bathing jetty, restroom and rubbish bins, as well as swings for the children.
Ätraforsdammen provides water to the Ätrafors power plant. The Ätran river’s original furrow with waterfalls and rapids has been dammed off, and the water has instead been routed into a canal leading to the power plant. The water basin holds four million cubic metres of water and covers an area of approximately two square kilometres. You are allowed to fish freely in the whole dammed area, but fishing by the floodgates is prohibited.
