Saint Charles pool to close for energy-saving upgrades

Just over a year on from its grand reopening, the Saint Charles swimming pool in central Monaco is set to close once again as the public facility undergoes a series of renovations in the name of improving its energy-efficiency ratings.  

The Piscine Saint-Charles on Avenue Saint-Charles will close on 15th July for an as-yet undetermined time period.  

The swimming pool has been the subject for several construction and renovation projects in recent years, and reopened anew last June after having been closed for a full year.

The changes being made this time around include a new heat pump that will help increase the speed of the water temperature rise required for baby swimming classes as well as upgrades in the central treatment and control rooms.

The pool is a popular space with locals of all ages, and offers a plethora of water-based activities, from Aqua Trampo classes, which see participants jump on a submerged trampoline in the pool, to yoga, Pilates and lessons for children. 

To offset any inconvenience to the public, the work has been timed to coincide with the summer swimming sessions at the Stade Nautique Rainier III in Port Hercule.
