Espace Sportif Pailleron Swimming Pool In Paris

The Espace Sportif Pailleron was originally built by the architect Lucien Pollet back in 1933 and has been classified as a listed building since 1998.

The complex has undergone complete renovations and reopened to the public in 2006 and is home to the only permanent ice rink in Paris as well as still having a fantastic swimming pool centre.

Espace Sportif Pailleron Swimming Pool In Paris

The renovations were done in such a way as to preserve the original architecture of the red brick facade and the original art deco interior and although there are still the two rows of changing cubicles that overlook the pool, just as there is at the Piscine Pontoise, these are not actually in use, as there are dedicated changing rooms in a completely different area.

You will find the gaudy colours of blue and yellow that decorate the interior as they did originally, yet the glass top it great, because it lets in lots of light and you can look up into the sky whilst you are in the pool.

The water space is comprised of both athletic and playful pools and the athletic pool is 33 metres in length and 15 metres in width.  The new playful pool space with spa is dedicated to fun and children and has waves, waterslide, etc and even a solarium for the sunny days and a spa that can cater for twenty people at a time and is great for the relaxation.

The pools are accessible to the handicapped and also for parents with very young children that want to teach them to swim at an early age.

We did quickly mention that this venue has an ice rink and this building was rebuilt on the site of the original ice rink that burned down in a fire in 1997.

The surface area of the ice is 800 square metres and the impressive glass that surrounds the exterior of the building allows the ice skaters to make the most of the natural light that it lets in. 

This building is situated opposite the building that houses the pools and is connected by a walkway, but there is also a caf? that provides drinks and snacks that overlooks the ice skating rink.

This venue is situated in the 19th Arrondissement in Paris, and is open most times during the year, but the ice skating rink is closed during the summer, but the pool complex actually stays open until later in the evening.
