The Wild Swim Map from the Outdoor Swimming Society is a crowd-sourced Google Map of great places to swim outdoors. It obviously was started in England – most of the swim spots are currently located there.
Here’s a call to action New York State swimmers – add our great outdoor swim locations to this Google map. Swimming locations is the “most searched on” term for New York Outdoors blog so there’s lots of interest in it. Help build this resource for the benefit of all.
The markers on the map are color-coded to indicate whether the location is an outdoor pool, a river, a lake etc. It is also possible to filter the results shown on the map by other activities, such as if there are opportunities for jumping / diving, skinny dipping or endurance swimming. Each location listed on the map includes a description and comments and many also include photographs of the outdoor swimming spot.
