Buperta Swimming Pool, East Jakarta

This post of Buperta Swimming Pool, Cibubur, serves as an additional note of Cibubur Scout Guesthouse and Campground, because the swimming pool is one of the complementary facilities within the vast area of Buperta. The family tourist area does provide a number of quite good public facilities.

Actually there is nothing too special about the Buperta Swimming Pool, just standard, but the environment is beautiful, clean, and well maintained, as shown in the photo at the beginning of the post. Nevertheless some parts of the building already needed to get a facelift.

Although since childhood I was already introduced to swimming pool, especially when we were still living in Jatinom, Klaten, but I had never seriously learned to swim. Therefore water tourism has never been my favorite, even whenever possible it has to be avoided. There were many pools with very clear water flew out from wellsprings around Jatinom that we used to visit, among others is Umbul Jolotundo.

A corner view of the swimming pool that is placed higher than rest of the areas that gives a good impression. The water was clear and the area was quite spacious to accommodate many people. This pool is special for adults, but there's one for children at the other side of the area.

What's special was to the lady officer, who though some of her hair looked white alreday but she still looked energetic, and vibrant. The lady named Neni allowed me to look inside and to take some photographs inside the wide area of Buperta Swimming Pool East Jakarta without paying entrance fee. However, he refused to allow two other young men entered for free when they wanted to meet their friends who were swimming in the pool.

View of the pool left area with an elongated sheltered chair that although aged but looked clean. No trash could be seen along the concave surface to the other end. Neni was seen maintaining the Buperta Swimming Pool very well.

Although there were also seats on the other side of the pool, but if considering the camp area Buperta that can accommodate thousands of people, maybe Neni will have trouble to provide seats if only 10% of them come swimming in this place.

The beauty of this pool environment may not be separated from the touch of Neni hands who have been in charge in this place for 32 years. During that time he always walks from her house to this place which far enough distance. No wonder she looked very healthy.

At the back end area there is where the pool reserved for the children, with the current pool trajectory snaking in the middle ground. Beautiful and clean environments were also visible in that area. Looking at the layout, the kids seem to be happy to take a dip in this place after a visit to Buperta Traffic Park.

In addition to individuals, Buperta Swimming Pool also accepts groups of 50 or more, providing flexibility in the open hours of service normally opened at 08.00 and closing at 15.00. I took some photos of Neni in several locations. The person is very friendly, talkative, so it is fun to talk to.

Neni said that she managed not using chlorine for the pool water that came from a lake. Neni used alum and kaporit (Calcium hypochlorite, there's still Cl elemet though), with certain composition to maintain clarity and acidity. It was one thing that made her had headache, before she finally found the right mixture.
