Information about the 120km of municipal canals of Paris

Paris location map France

The municipal canals of Paris (Canaux de la Ville de Paris), opened in 1822, are increasingly popular for cruising and boat trips, while retaining their prime functions of water supply and commercial navig­ation in the industrial suburbs to the north of Paris. They are made up of the canalised river Ourcq and Canal de l’Ourcq, the Clignon branch canal, the Canal Saint-Denis and Canal Saint-Martin. Their combined length is 120km. The declining commercial traffic and parallel boom in pleasure cruising throughout France in the 1980s prompted the Paris city council to remove most of the earlier constraints and open up the entire system for recreational navigation. A small licence fee is charged for passage through the Canal Saint-Denis and Canal Saint-Martin :
–    for boats of up to 15 m, €15.92,
–    for boats longer than 15 m, €53.04.
These are very modest fees, especially as they cover the entire year. The licence gives access to the Canal de l’Ourcq, a unique and charming waterway, which passes through many places of historic interest, before reaching the former timber-loading quay at Port-aux-Perches and the equally remote location of La Commanderie at the end of the Clignon branch canal.
Development of recreational navigation on these rural waterways has been handicapped by the narrow locks on the Canal de l’Ourcq above Les Pavillons-sous-Bois. These are being rebuilt to allow slightly broader-beam vessels to use the canal, but one narrow lock remains at Varreddes.
The route descriptions are grouped together after the separate descriptions of the three canals.

History
 – Among the earliest canalised rivers in Europe, the Ourcq was surveyed by Leonardo da Vinci, and some works were undertaken in the 16th century. It then led directly to the Marne, through a series of flash locks and primitive locks. It was improved by Louis de Regemorte around 1750. The canal proper was built in 1822 after approval by Napoleon. The parallel locks were narrow and long (58.80 by 3.20m). The main aim of this canal is nowadays to provide water for cleaning the streets of Paris and feeding the other two canals. It is a free-flowing contour canal, a rare combination.
The Canal Saint-Martin was designed to by-pass Paris, when the Seine was not canalised and became dry in the summer. Napoleon also supported this project. Started in 1809, it was inaugurated only after his death in 1825. Locks are of the Marne size, 41.70 by 7.80 m, all double staircase locks except for # 9 into the Seine. It was partly covered by a tunnel to facilitate army movement towards the insurrection-prone suburb of Saint-Antoine.
The Canal Saint-Denis is the other part of this intended short-cut, the Canal de l’Ourcq being the ‘summit’ level and link between the two canals. Started in 1805, it was inaugurated in 1826. Each site has two parallel locks, one Freycinet size, the other 62.50 by 8.10 m. The depth is 3.20 m. The upper lock has a fall of 10m, and incorporates a saving basin between the two chambers.

Navigation on the Canal de l’Ourcq

The Canal de l’Ourcq extends 108km from the Bassin de la Villette in Paris, where it joins the Canal Saint-Denis and Canal Saint-Martin, to the remote hamlet of Port-aux Perches, on the edge of the Retz forest. The waterway is made up of three distinct sections:
–    the widened section from La Villette to Pavillons-sous-Bois (11km),
–    the ‘narrow’ canal from Pavillons-sous-Bois to Mareuil (86km),
–    the canalised river Ourcq, over a distance of 11km from the diversion weir at Mareuil to Port-aux-Perches.
The widened section is navigable by Seine barges carrying up to 900 tonnes, but the rest of the waterway was historically used only by the equivalent of the English narrow boat, the flûte or demi-flûte d’Ourcq, with a beam of only 3.20m. The available width is to be increased to 3.70m, by widening one of the two parallel chambers at each of the five narrow locks. These works have bene completed at four of the five locks on this section. This new beam is now sufficient for many boats and there is no reason why cruising should not develop on this system. Alternative access may eventually be possible from the canalised river Marne at Lizy, where a boat lift has projected, to overcome the 13m difference in level.
No tolls are charged for use of the canal by boats, but a laisser-passer of limited duration must be obtained from the top locks of the Canal Saint-Denis or Canal Saint-Martin. Craft with an air draught of less than 1.90m are issued a straightforward déclaration.
The route description is given in the reverse direction, from La Villette to Port-aux-Perches, for the convenience of boats entering the canal from the Seine.

Navigation – The Paris canals intra muros are broad and easy to navigate, but some commercial traffic may be encountered on the Canal Saint-Denis and the first section of the Canal de l’Ourcq. Above Sevran the canal becomes much narrower and the current may be quite strong, so negotiating tight bends will require skilful handling, all the more so with longer craft.

Locks There are 10 locks, overcoming a total difference in level of 13.80m. The first encountered when heading upstream from Paris is Sevran, 88m long and 8.10m wide. Then there are the five ‘narrow’ locks, originally 58.80m long and 3.20m wide. Four of these have in recent years been widened to 5.20m, thus increasing the maximum authorised beam to 3.70m (the canal is too narrow to accommodate broader-beam boats). It remains to widen the lock at Varreddes (or possibly to build a new parallel chamber, so that at least one of the original locks is preserved). No target date has been announced for completion of these works. The last four locks, on the canalised river Ourcq, are 63.00 by 5.20m.
Sevran lock is now automated like the others. A special key is supplied either at the last locks of the two canals or at the office Quai de la Marne, for do-it-yourself operation of all the other locks, as well as the lift-bridges (free of charge, see below). A leaflet is also issued, giving all necessary instructions for lock operation, as well as for mooring on the canal, which is strictly controlled to prevent any attempts at residential mooring.

Draught The maximum authorised draught is 2.60m on the widened section to Pavillons-sous-Bois (PK 11), and 0.80m throughout the rest of the waterway, although the available depth is 1.30m.

Headroom The fixed bridges offer a minimum headroom of 4.09m on the widened section and 2.60m on the rest of the canal. There are two lift bridges, at Claye-Souilly (PK 27) and Congis (PK 71), which like the locks must be operated by the users and closed immediately after passage. At Claye-Souilly the bridge offers a headroom of 2.60m in the closed position.

Speed The maximum authorised speed is 6km/h.

Towpath There is a towpath throughout, while a dedicated cycleway has been laid out between La Villette basin and Claye-Souilly, partly using the historic towpath and partly on a separate right-of-way.

Navigation on the Canal Saint-Denis

The Canal Saint-Denis extends 6.6km from the junction with the Canal de l’Ourcq at the Bassin de la Villette to the Seine at Saint-Denis. It is the busiest of the three canals in Paris, passing through predominantly industrial suburbs, with numerous private quays used by commercial barges. For access to the Canal de l’Ourcq boaters may prefer to use the Canal Saint-Martin, entered 30km further upstream on the Seine, but the Canal Saint-Denis may be appreciated for its contrasting urban landscapes and imposing locks.

Navigation A licence is required to navigate on the canal. It is issued to cover navigation all-year-round on the two canals within Paris, and costs €15.92 for boats of up to 15 m in length, and €53.04 for boats of more than 15 m.

Locks  There are seven paired locks, overcoming a total difference in level of 24m. The large chamber is 62.50m long and 8.20m wide, while the small chamber is 38.90 by 5.20m. Maximum authorised dimensions are 60.50 by 8.00m. A toll of (€5.42) is payable by boats for the passage of the canal.

Draught The maximum authorised draught is 3.00m from the Seine to lock 3 and 2.60m in the remaining section to the Bassin de la Villette.

Headroom – TThe bridges leave a minimum headroom of 4.60m (maximum authorised air draught 4.44m).
Towpath There is a towpath throughout.

Navigation on the Canal Saint-Martin

The Canal Saint-Martin, opened to navigation three years after the Canal de l’Ourcq, in 1825, extends 4.5km from the Bassin de la Villette to the Seine at the quai Henri IV, just upstream of the two islands in the heart of Paris. The canal has become an icon of Parisian charm, with its elegant iron footbridges, and trip-boats operate regular passenger services through the canal. Now it is also familiar to boat owners visiting Paris, thanks to the 170-berth marina in the Bassin de l’Arsenal, immediately beyond the entrance lock from the Seine. The marina is operated by Fayolle Marine (which took over management in 2008).
For almost half its length (2069m), the canal is in tunnel (in fact a succession of voûtes offering varying navigable widths) under two main boulevards and the Place de la Bastille. Vessels are not allowed to meet in the tunnel and passage is controlled by lights.

Navigation The licence mentioned above under the Canal Saint-Denis covers navigation all-year-round on the two canals within Paris.

Locks There are 9 locks, of which the first 8 are grouped in 4 double staircases. Their dimensions are 42 by 7.80m (authorised dimensions 40.70 by 7.70m). Lock 9, giving access from the Seine to the marina, is remote-controlled from the harbour­master’s office, which carefully monitors arrivals at the pontoon just outside the entrance. A toll of €2.97 is payable by boats for the passage of the canal lock, except for the entrance Lock 9 (free for boats up to 15m).
Loueur souhaité – Faylolle – logements étudiants – restaurant – ateliers d’artistes

Draught The maximum authorised draught is 1.90m.

Headroom – The fixed bridges leave a minimum headroom of 4.37m. There are two swing bridges.

Towpath There is a towpath throughout.
