To start, we should probably say that this isn't a place actually designated for swimming... but it's perfect for a bucolic dip of the feet, a spot of sunbathing or enjoying a picnic. This 'river beach' opened in the spring of 2016 with the aim of expanding the leisure spaces in a part of Girona, Sant Ponç, that suffers from a lack of such places and a matching excess of asphalt, despite being close to the river Ter. The long-term plan is for a pathway to connect this space with the Hospital Trueta, so that patients can go for walks there. In a city used to polemic (there are few things more conservative than lifelong Girona inhabitants), surprisingly the decision to clear a section of the Ter's riverside to create a recreational area didn't result in any complaints, but instead a certain amount of enthusiasm; indeed, the 'beach' is always full. Enjoy what is perhaps one of the most charming natural spaces in the city. And if you do decide to go swimming, take care (but we would do it as well).
