    Swimming ponds?!

    Can't believe this....guess their common in Europe. Emphasis on a balance between natural chemistry, living greenery, integration with the landscape, and a swimmable area. 1st link is a slideshow format. I gotta hand it to them for nice integration with the landscape, I just don't know if I'd want to swim in the murky water. Guess its like swimming in a lake. ... ols-460908
