Teams that Use Facility
We have no web links or contact information for teams that train at this facility.
Although locker charges are mandatory, we're told the system is not very secure; the key is kept by an attendant who will probably not ask for identification to open it - and if s/he did, where would you stow your ID?
To which another swimmer replies: "Ridiculous. The system has been that way since the pool was built decades ago and it works smoothly. Who, emerging from a pool and dripping wet, would want to enter a cabin other than the one that contains their belongings?"
Facility Reviews
One of the most reviewed listings in the database, we summarize the general consensus: It is almost always crowded (be there at 7AM or don't plan on getting much of a swim in), lane space is limited, the water is often too warm for a workout, and lanes are not speed designated. Still, one of the best pools in Paris.
Don't be too worried over security at this family-oriented public pool. It's a great pool, if crowded. A fun place to mingle with the locals. Swim caps required and available for sale.
Although the lanes are busy, they are quite wide and faster swimmers can easily pass mid-lane (which is common in European public pools). I agree that this is one of the best pools in Paris and it's certainly atmospheric! [October, 2013]
