Celebrate the unveiling of the exhibit "Think Swim, Think Swiss: Bringing Swiss-Style Swimming to the Charles River" with a Swiss Beach Day at the Charles.

Have you ever wondered what swimming in the Charles River would feel like? Have you ever, on a hot summer’s day, craved diving into the city’s water for a refreshing dip over lunch or after work? In Switzerland, this is exactly what people do on warm summer days. Urban river and lake swimming is an irreplaceable part of summer lifestyle.

In a joint effort to bring swimming back to the Charles River, swissnex Boston is partnering with the Charles River Conservancy for the upcoming exhibit “Think Swim, Think Swiss: Bringing Swiss Style Swimming to the Charles River”. As the water quality of the Charles River continues to improve, it is time to make river swimming in the United States a reality as well.

Find out about Swiss river swimming culture during an afternoon filled with activities and enjoyments. Take a look at the Swiss cross exhibition panels and get a glimpse of what swimming in the Charles River could be like in the future. Let KnuckleBones' game instructors introduce you to cool games for young and old. Enjoy snacks and drinks and experience how a swimmable river could contribute to a higher quality of life for everyone.
