Vitry-en-Artois: The Aquatis water park reinvents itself to prepare for the future

Open since the summer of 2014, the Aquartis room, the flagship facility of the municipal community of Osartis-Marquion, has quickly become an important leisure center for the area.

During the last eight years, Aquatis has taken up a first challenge by meeting the expectations of the people of the Osartis-Marquion area. The complex has never stopped diversifying its activities and innovating to satisfy users. All this while maintaining its public service dimension, with learning to swim as a priority.

Dear energy

Other challenges await the water park today, in a health context that has been disrupted for two years by the Covid crisis, and in light of the increase in energy costs. The operation and maintenance costs become difficult for society to bear due to the exorbitant energy costs. A scenario that had been foreseen from the development of the project, where a multi-energy solution was chosen. The water fun area thus has two boilers, one gas and the other wood, which is not enough to drastically reduce operating costs. A reflection is therefore underway with a view to moving towards renewable energies such as the sun.

“Nocturne” on Tuesday

Regarding operations, elected officials have decided to strengthen the service offer. In order to adapt to the needs of users, Aquatis will see its working hours increase significantly from 1 September along three axes. Swimmers will benefit from ten extra hours of opening of the leisure pool, five hours of opening in addition to the sports pool and a new “night opening” on Tuesday until 8.30pm, which complements Friday’s. The weekly opening hours for the pools will thus approach the 70-hour limit.

Prices until 1 September: children under 3, free; children from 3 to 14 years, 3 and 4 euros; teenagers over 15 and adults, 4 and 5 euros; family card, 11 and 14 euros (4 people including max. 2 adults). Reduced prices are reserved for residents of Osartis-Marquion.
