on the website of Halassy Olivér Swimming Pool

I am pleased to welcome you on the website of Halassy Olivér Sports Centre – Community Swimming Pool.

The priority of Újpest Municipality is to assure all necessary conditions for the coming generation’s sporty, healthy upbringing. This modern facility using renewable energy - was built in Káposztásmegyer within the confines of the „Hajrá Újpest! Városfejlesztési Program” (urban development program) - is also in line with taking such responsibility. At the same time the symbol of the swimming pool was created by the mutual involvement of the Újpest community therefore it is of great value to the city. The choice of name is not a coincidence either: the name Halassy is an emblem; not only with his achievements in sports but also with his personal greatness he surpasses us and is an exemplar to every one of us. Enjoy your time at Halassy Olivér Sports Centre – Community Swimming Pool that can contribute to our physical well-being and the success of our children.
