A new gymnasium for the 2nd district

The Halle aux Fleurs, a former wholesale market building and brand new public gym, celebrated its grand opening on 22 March. At the foot of Ynfluences Square (block A3), the gymnasium perfectly illustrates one of the goals for this neighbourhood: innovation and preserved heritage.

The building, with its sleek aesthetics, offers two large spaces: a ground floor used primarily for martial arts and a space devoted to dance. It also features a green roof.

“This area boasts a broad range of sports facilities, with the skating rink, the ice sports club (CSGL), hockey, the Sonny Anderson football stadium, the Ravat Boules Centre and the Chanfray Gymnasium,” observes Yann Cucherat, Deputy Mayor in charge of Sports for the City of Lyon.
