Taps turned off for Akwawit
The swimming pool has closed despite subsidies worth PLN 300,000
POLAND The oldest Polish aqua park, Akwawit in Leszno, has been closed down, with the management failing to secure what it regards as adequate funding from the town.

The swimming pool complex first opened in1993 and for the next 20 years it made use of hot water produced as a by-product from the nearby Akwawit-Polmos factory owned by Bartimpex, a company controlled by Aleksander Gudzowaty. A hotel and conference centre were built next to the pool complex, which came to be visited by around 500,000 people a year. A few years ago, Akwawit cut off the supply of hot water to the park, which resulted in the centre becoming dependent on financing from the local authorities. Leszno is offering PLN 200,000 from its budget to the swimming pool as well as a release from the property tax (app. PLN 100,000), but the swimming pool has decided that this is still insufficient for it to continue operations. “The remaining facilities of Centrum Konferencji i Rekreacji ‘Akwawit’, such as the Akwawit hotel and restaurant, as well as the conference centre and spa with saunas will continue their operations without disruption, reads an announcement from the company.
