SPORTS, LEISURE, FAMILY AND NATURE!
The PAarc des Rives de l’Aa is a vast leisure area open to everybody, a park with 175 hectares of grounds equipped for outdoor sports.
Its Olympic watersports stadium, open since 2011, hosts a number of local, national and international sports teams (rowing, canoe-kayak, open-water swimming, triathlon, etc.), for training and competitions.
During the holiday period, the PAarc offers a range of fun activities for families, both in the water and on land.
The water basin in the leisure centre and the nature zone have been undergoing a process of development and improvement since February 2014. New activities will soon be on offer, including a cable-ski system, optimist dinghy sailing, windsurfing, etc. The nature zone is to take on an educational role, raising environmental awareness. A great way to make learning fun!
Events are an important part of life here: not only the big competitions that attract lots of spectators, but also those that are open to everyone, like the "Délire Grav'", a wacky obstacle course!
