Lille isn't just a cultural and historic city, it's an active city too! Every year it organises over 150 sports events at all levels: the tennis Open du Nord, the Trail des Remparts trek, Fête du Vélo cycling festival, 24 hours of sport, swimming pool nights… If you want to get active during your stay in Lille, you're sure to find a sports field or a gym near the hotel.
Joggers or cyclists should head to the Citadelle park, a 90 hectare island of green. In the park, you can also play volleyball or football, try out slackline, or workout outdoors with the many open-air exercise facilities and equipment along the alleys. Also in the Citadelle park, every Sunday, the city organises free Nordic walking, Swedish gym, and tai chi sessions, and the Deûle is the perfect river to go paddle boating, rowing or canoeing. If you prefer swimming a few lengths, try the Marx Dormoy Olympic pool, a few minutes from our charming hotel, the Fives pool, or the new Plein Sud pool with its outdoor beaches and wellbeing space: sauna, steam room, solarium, massage jets…
On Friday nights, put on your roller blades for a guided group skate which leaves from Place de la République at 9 pm. Skaters will also be delighted to find the largest skate park north of Paris. The Halle de Glisse offers a 2,000 m² outdoor space and 4,000 m² of indoor facilities for skaters, rollerbladers, BMX or scooters.
Finally, amateur golfers should stop by the Blue Green Lille Métropole golf course in Ronchin, just 10 minutes' drive from the hotel. They will find an 18-hole, par 72, 6,193 metre course and a 9-hole, par 36, 1,700 metre course.
