Tony Bertrand Nautical Centre, of Olympic stature

In summer, with its Nautical Centre built for its 1968 Olympic bid, which has since been renovated, the city of Lyon is transformed into a seaside and sports resort.

This nautical complex on Quai Claude Bernard in Guillotière, occupies the banks of the Rhône like a docked ship. Built for the city's bid for the Summer Olympics of 1968, its pools have been completely renovated and are at the forefront of aquatic modernity. They are now also named after the city's former deputy mayor in charge of sports, Tony Bertrand, who initiated the project. You can swim here in summer and winter, even outdoors. At 50 x 21 metres, with water heated to 27°C, the south Olympic pool is open all year round. Swimmers can enjoy a panoramic view of the Hôtel-Dieu, overlooked by the Fourvière basilica, while doing their lengths. At 68 x 24 metres, the north pool offers summer family leisure activities such as bubbling hot tubs, a waterslide, a counter-current stream, and a paddling pool. The water garden itself is essentially sporty, with aqua aerobics and fitness, beach soccer and beach volleyball.
