where and how to swim this summer 2022


Most of the sanitary measures in 2021 are still in place to go to the swimming pool in Lyon this summer in 2022. You still need to set aside a time slot for the City of Lyon pools.

Even if the Covid measures fall, a reservation to go to the municipal swimming pool of the city of Lyon remains mandatory. Most of the time it’s online (book a book here), but not just. It is also possible to come to the ticket offices of certain swimming pools and reserve your place.

Again this year the time slots are 4.30 pm, which usually runs from 10.30 to 3 pm and from 15.30 to 8 pm in most of the swimming pools in the City.

The price level has to be counted between 2.60 euros (children, students under 26, unemployed, etc.) to 3.40 euros per ticket to go to the municipal swimming pool.

1. Tête d’Or’s temporary swimming pool renewed for 3rd year

It is one of three projects in which the ecologists at Lyon’s city hall plan to invest 16m euros in Lyon swimming pools during his tenure. The project, presented in March 2022, consists of integrating a swimming pool on the ground floor of a sports complex in the 8th district, in the “Kennedy block” (corner rue Varichon/rue de la Concorde – behind the school of the same name). . There will be another 25-meter and 15-meter pool. Expected delivery: September 2026

Two other flagship projects aim to enlarge the Aquavert swimming pool in Francheville and upgrade and expand the Gerland swimming pool (Lyon 7.).

10. The swimming pool at the Aquavert park in Francheville

With its discoverable pools (learning and swimming pools), children’s pool, 33-meter slide and shady green areas, the swimming pool in the Aquavert park attracts many families every summer. Lyon Municipality also announced that part of the funds allocated for the five-year swimming pool plan will be allocated to the repair and construction of new infrastructure in the Aquavert park. Even though the complex is not located in Lyon but between Francheville and Tassin, the Municipality plans to use it to meet the demands of the people in the west of Lyon, especially the schools in the 5th district.

The summer term will open on June 18. Unlike last year, access to the water area, weight training area and mini golf is no longer via online booking. However, this always applies to birthdays, sports holiday courses, group fitness and water sports classes.
