The land is owned by the city with a total area of 13 200 m2. The connection of the outdoor swimming pool with the new municipal spa will create a sports and relaxation center linked to the town's sports infrastructure along Petrovická Street. The new city spa includes a swimming pool (25 m), a relaxation pool, a sauna world, a fitness center, and additional services. The design includes a solution for parking and traffic connections to the site.
