Piscine Joséphine Baker

Quai François Mauriac - 75013 Paris
Joséphine Baker swimming pool
The Josephine Baker swimming pool is closed from 1 September to 22 November 2021.
Creating a floating pool on the River Seine was a daring venture! The giant barge housing the Josephine Baker swimming pool is moored next to the Bibliothèque François Mitterrand in the 13th arrondissement. The pool is 25 metres long and 10 metres wide, with four lanes open to swimmers of all levels. This one-of-a-kind swimming experience is even more special in summer, when the glass roof opens up to reveal a huge sun deck providing a fabulous view of the Seine. Besides the main 250-m² pool, there is a 50-m² wading pool for children, not to mention solariums, saunas, a hammam, a jacuzzi and a gym featuring fitness and bodybuilding equipment.
