As every year, Voie Georges Pompidou, the riverside road that is the main site of Paris Plage, will make way for a huge beach, offering deck chairs and sporting activities.

The Bassin de la Villette in the 19th arrondissement and the square outside the Htel de Ville (City Hall) will also be part of the event..

Paris Plage transforms the city and its uses, to the delight of both tourists and those who are unable to get away on holiday.
