A Lake with Clear Bottom Visibility
North of Tidaholm, you'll find the swimming spot known as Bruksdammen. It's a crystal-clear spring-fed lake with clear bottom visibility, created from the old limestone quarry that once occupied this location. The water in the lake was used for quenching alum during the production process. In Bruksdammen, there's a floating dock with a crosswalk that separates the shallow from the deep areas. There's a grassy area with a small sandy beach. The swimming spot is equipped with outdoor toilets, changing rooms, and a grill area.
