Hidden behind the Marx Dormoy metro in a small, tree-filled square near the beginning of rue des Fillettes, Piscine Herbert offers a clean, calm and light-filled pool, with lines reminiscent of a huge ocean liner.
There are two pools – one 14m long and quite shallow, used mainly for aquagym lessons and paddling , the other 25m and surrounded by two floors of individual changing rooms and overlooked by a huge glass roof. Due to its location, this pool is largely forgotten by the noisy crowds, allowing a peaceful swim even on fine days in summer. Aquagym, swimming lessons, water polo and water safety courses are all on offer – and once you’ve worked off some calories, you can go directly to the charming Olive market a few steps away and undo all your good work with some delicious Portugese, Senegalese or Middle Eastern pastries.
