Description

As part of the world Olympic Day, the City of Paris, the Comité National Olympique Sportif Français (CNOSF) and Paris 2024 unite to transform the heart of Paris into a gigantic temporary Olympic Park, dedicated to the celebration of sport and Olympic values and ideals.

On 23 and 24 June, the public is invited to: 

  • try out for free more than thirty Olympic and Paralympic sports
  • see high-level sporting demonstrations
  • meet numerous French athletes

To enable everyone to get around on foot, by bike, skateboard or rollerblades, a large part of the centre of Paris will be pedestrianized for the occasion and areas for sports activities will be developed and made accessible to all: the Parc Rives de Seine, the Louvre, Place de la Concorde,  Invalides, the Pavillon de l'Arsenal, the Petit Palais, the Grand Palais ...

Among the most spectacular facilities:

  • A floating athletics track installed between the Pont Alexandre III and the Pont Invalides bridge.
  • A diving board on Pont Alexandre III
  • Fencing, wrestling, archery, gymnastics, pole vaulting
  • Races and rowing demonstrations on the Seine.

Other major events not to be missed:

  • Tony Estanguet takes part in kayaking, starting from the Stade de France, via the Canal Saint-Denis, the Canal Saint-Martin, the Port de l’Arsenal and finishing at Invalides.
