Olympic Basin

April 26 to October 31, 2015


A legacy from the 1976 Summer Olympics, the Basin hosts sports groups in rowing, canoe-kayak, dragon boats, and high-performance championships and competitions. The Olympic Basin extends over 2.2 kilometres in length; it is 110 metres wide and 2.5 metres deep. The Basin's unique installations and it's calm waters make it the pride of every rowing enthusiast.
