Indoors – there is an 25m indoor pool with lanes, a children’s pool with rapids, water jets and a slide.

Outdoors – the outdoor area is large and comprises the 50m Olympic pool (swimming in an outdoor pool with a view of Mont Blanc is a special experience), a children’s pool, slides and a children’s paddling pool.  Outdoors, there is also a small lake (not for swimming) and a refreshment hut.

Babies and small children – as well as the indoor children’s pool and the outdoor paddling pool and slides, the Centre Sportif Richard Bozon offers special classes for babies and toddlers.  On a Saturday morning at 10h, the Jardin d’Eau offers plenty of fun to babies and toddlers (from 6 months to 3 years) with one or two adults accompanying.  At 11h is the Petits Poissons class for children from 3-5 years.  Lots of toys are put out and the pool is slightly warmed for these classes.  See here for more details.
