You can call it a sea serpent. For more than twenty years, we have been talking about the construction of an intercommunal swimming pool north of Rennes. After many turmoils, abandonments or defections, the project is now on track since December 2021. Called Aqua Ouest, this aquatic center should see the light of day in early 2025 on the edge of the West Bank commercial area in Pacé, west of the Breton capital.

Six municipalities (Pacé, Saint-Gilles, Montgermont, Le Rheu, La Chapelle-Thouarault and L'Hermitage) will participate financially, alongside the region and the departmental council, in the construction of this 4,000 m² facility whose budget is around 11 million euros.

Water games and balneotherapy

More modest than expected, this intercommunal pool will have a 25-meter pool with five swimming lanes, a 150 m² leisure pool, a water playground with paddling pool and slide, a balneotherapy area and a green solarium outside.

Its realization has been entrusted to the architectural firm Dubuisson Architecture with the first pickaxes expected in the coming days.
