Its free

Walked a while through the lovely streets of Bordeaux to get here, very popular with dogs, kids and all, if you want that perfect picture then perhaps a 3am visit. Maybe a bit harsh but its free and in a lovely position.

Very cool water pool!
Aug 2021
Loved the idea of a pool of water that filled and emptied on a regular basis. When full of water, the reflections of the Place de la Bourse were amazing. Nice to see all the kids having so much fun.

Unique.
We have seen a lot of places but this is our #1 worldwide.
It doesn't matter what time or which weather it's always worth comming here.
Don't mind the crowd just wander around and you will make a good picture.

Pool
Aug 2021 • Couples
It kinda has to go with the building which is not great right now. It's fairly difficult to see the mirror effect at the moment. It's essentially an auxiliary kids pool at this point.

Visually Stunning, A Must-See
Oct 2019
A new way of viewing the old world. It's a treat for everyone when the mist envelops the ground. Even more stunning at night. Water comes out and appears to mirror the grand & elegant Place de la Bourse. I haven't seen anything like it. Beautiful, fun, and trippy. Perfect for taking pictures. Best of all, it's free.

Beautiful square
Aug 2020 • Couples
Gives an extra dimension to the already impressive square. Water comes and goes and at night nice reflections appear with the evening lights

Beautiful view, romantic spot
Aug 2020 • Friends
Visit at night, bring the kids. Or even better, leave them at the hotel and go be romantic with your partner ;)

A must see in Bordeaux
Jul 2020
A must see in Bordeaux. Beautiful mirroring effect of the buildings. + if you're traveling with children or teenagers and it's a hot day, then it's really cool to wander in the water.

busy day and night
Jul 2020
lovely to people watch here, everyone paddling as the water bubbles up through the cracks onto the mirror paving. kids, parents, grandparents, lovers and dogs a plenty. great ambience and next to the river for good views up and down, do as the locals do and take a picnic and drink a glass of wine as the sun goes down. mind you it gets busy, really busy, all of Bordeaux seems to congregate here in the evening to sit and drink wine and socialise on the grass and watch people play.
