Notes
Boxer-style swim trunks are not permitted; Speedo-style briefs are required for men. (This is a common rule in the French-speaking part of Belgium.) Swim caps are mandatory.
The pool is open on Friday evening until 9 P.M. (21h00), which, we're told, is rare in Brussels.


Facility Reviews
A modern, nice, clean pool. Gets crowded with kids and slow swimmers on weekends.
Check times, especially on weekends. A noon to 2 P.M. break on weekends can be irritating if you arrive then. Weekdays, it's "everyone out" at 7:30.
This is thesecond best central pool in Brussels, after the pool at the VUB (Brussels Free University).
Evening and weekend aquagym and other classes may leave only 2 or 3 crowded lanes. Rebuilt in 2002 after the original was destroyed by a fire.
Nice and clean, but too crowded if you want to do anything other than slow breast stroke. [October, 2013]
