Why was Pernu Swimming Pond rejected?

The title: “Pernun monttu - Pernu Swimming Pond”.

Description: “Pernun montulla on hiekkapohjainen uimaranta. Rannalla on myös nuotiopaikka. - Pernu Swimming Pond has sandy bottom. There is also fireplace.”

Suplemental information: “Perheiden suosima uimapaikka kesällä. Paikalle pääsee kävellen, pyöräillen tai autolla. - Families love this swimming pond. You can get there by foot, by bike or by car.”

Photos: Main photo has fireplace in it. Second photo is from opposite shore. There are two exits from Pernuntie to the pond, and pictures are taken from those locations you arrive following these two exits. The distance between photo locations is approximately 50-70 metres, 100 metres at most.

Can anyone help me, please?

Hello and welcome @paiviluu

My initial impression is that this looks like a lovely place, but it doesn’t look specifically like a swimming pond. It looks like a lake.

Are there any specific signs or a website that describe it as a swimming pond? It needs something much more solid and focussed if it is to work.

The fire place may be a better submission point. Sitting around a fire is a great social activity. And the fire is a distinct point and feature so it stands a much better chance of being approved.
Have you got some pictures of the fire area - nice closeups?

Whereabouts is this?

Thanks! :heart:

In the picture it sure looks like a lake. I don’t know what size the water area should officially be so that you can call it a lake… :face_with_raised_eyebrow:

Locals would never refer this as a lake, it’s too small. It’s not even kilometre long or wide.

The pond is located in Finland, city called Kalajoki. The address is shown in the second picture.

I’ll consider nominating the fireplace instead. Thanks you for your thoughts! :smiling_face_with_three_hearts:

Hey, call it a bathing area. In that way you are focusing on the bathing area, which includes the grilling area as a man-made “anchor” for the submission. Take the photo in landscape mode, with the grill/benches in the bottom half front center, and then the beach/lake in the back.
Example, an approved beach of mine:

Agree that it’s more of a beach or bathing area. Also, make sure you are placing the location on land and not in the water, as that is safer than the water.
