Fancy a dip? Paris-Saclay swimming pools

Piscine la vague

When summer arrives and the temperature rises, there’s nothing like a dip in the pool. This is, after all, the only place where you can swim all year round without having to jump on a plane first!

After a long day’s work or to allow the children to let off steam, or just to get some exercise,  check out the swimming pools of our destination.

There’s no doubt about it, Paris-Saclay can be very refreshing!


For families

“Get ready children, we’re going to the swimming pool!”. These words are often met with squeals of excitement. To tell the truth, our dear kids are practically in their swimming gear, armbands and all, before we’ve even left the house!

The ideal pool for young children is the paddling pool where they can start having fun in the water (and splashing us!). But if the children are ready to float with the help of armbands or a pool noodle, then they can try the children’s pool where they can experiment with swimming on their backs or try their first strokes without armbands under the supervision of an adult.

By the way, did you know there’s a pool with a wave machine in the conurbation? Yes, the municipal pool at Ulis features a wave pool with its very own tide. Crazy isn’t it?

Last but not least, the absolute must for children, beyond any shadow of a doubt, has to be the waterslide at La Vague, the pool complex in Palaiseau! For us it’s a little nerve-wracking, seeing our children climb out of the pool. “Be careful, don’t run, you’ll slip over”. 

My selection for your next outing: 
– La Vague pool complex (Palaiseau)
– Christine Caron swimming pool (Montlhéry)
– Municipal swimming pool (Les Ulis)
– Swimming pool at the Centre Omnisports (Sports Centre in Massy) 

For keen swimmers

On your marks, get set… Splash! Whether you’re just here for pleasure or training for a swimming gala, make the most of Paris-Saclay’s two Olympic-size pools (50-metres). In summer or winter, you can enjoy the heated outdoor pool at Orsay pool complex.

50-metre pools in the Paris-Saclay conurbation: 

– The outdoor pool (heated) of the swimming pool complex (Orsay)
– The swimming pool of the Centre Omnisports (Massy sports centre)

Make the most of the sun at the outdoor swimming pools

You must admit, the heat of summer is always more pleasant when you can be at the pool rather than staying indoors to keep cool. So grab your gear and head for one of the conurbation’s two facilities with outdoor pools. Start by smothering yourself with suncream to avoid turning into a lobster by the end of the day. Then, swim a few lengths (to maintain that summer body) before drying off on your towel with a good book. Now that’s what I call a great day!

Outdoor pools of the Paris-Saclay conurbation: 
– Pool complex (Orsay)
– La Vague pool complex (Palaiseau)

“This is one of our favourite family outings. The children love going swimming and it’s nice for us, as parents, to see them at ease in the water.”
