Lake Verevi (Estonian: Verevi järv; also known as Lake Elva or Elva Suurjärv) is a 11.7 ha (29 acres) lake located on the western side of the town of Elva in southern Estonia.[1]

There is one main dock, that has two slides (a red one and a blue one), side-by-side. The big dock has an enclosed area used specifically for swimming. There is a smaller dock about 40 ft. out, that has two diving boards. Nearby there is a life guard house, where you can get First-Aid, or other necessities. There is a lot of tourist attraction during the summer time, with its beautiful area and surrounding forests.[citation needed]
