Other swimmers had criticised the practice, according to Teemu Raatikainen, who manages the pool.
Previously, the Jakomäki swimming hall blocked off Saturday mornings specifically for Muslim women. The women's session followed a swimming class for Muslim girls.
The Jakomäki pool reopened on Wednesday after being closed for renovation. From now on, the pool will be open to all women—and off-limits to men—on Tuesday evenings.
The refurbished facility boasts new pool cleaning technology in addition to updated washrooms and saunas.
