Paris plages summer festival

Along the Quai de la Seine and Quai de la Loire, there will be deckchairs, pétanque, fountains, activities and entertainment for children and adults alike. A water sports complex will be offering introductions to canoeing, rowing, dinghy-sailing and more besides.

Since 2017 you can swin in Paris with the three basins along the Quai de la Villette. One basin is 40 cm deep, the second 1.20 m deep and the largest 2.20 m deep.

A summery ambiance is assured in the pavement cafés, where visitors can relish leisurely hours of dolce farniente discussing the boules matches going on, while the children splash around in the fountains and run off to all the entertainment and activities. So plenty of events and activities to enjoy with family or friends.

You want more activities around Paris's water banks? Look right there!
