Toddler friendly pools

Hi, I'm confused about swimming pools! Please excuse my ignorance, I'm looking for a toddler friendly pool in Geneva which isn't closed! Any recommendations? We live in Plainpalais, but I'm happy to hop on a tram. The one I went to one (Piscine Vernets) and it seems to be closed at the moment.

Any suggestions/recommendations appreciated

Re: Toddler friendly pools

I'm not sure about Geneva, but most pools here around the Zurich area seem to be toddler-friendly (including many of the thermal baths/hot springs).

I just wouldn't take the child in any pools where there are marked swimming lanes, since those are usually reserved for more serious swimmers. So look for a place that has a few different pools. There is usually at least one reserved for kids.

Re: Toddler friendly pools

I think you will have more luck at some of the thermal bains just over the border in France. Depends on which side of GVA you are on.
