Habiter la ville par le sport et les loisirs? La création des bases de plein air et de loisirs (1964-1976)

Abstract : The development of outdoor recreation centres was con- structed in France around a single concept, the outline of which was laid down by Maurice Herzog in a circular of 1964: ‘a complex which unites, in a natural site close to the local population, the elements necessary to promote the practice of outdoor sports and activities and cultural studies, as well as relaxation and fresh air.’ Based on the Fifth Plan for modernization and amenities, the centres were created throughout France and particularly in Île-de-France, where a dozen establishments were planned, notably along- side projects to extend the city of Paris. This study aims to focus attention on the task of defining the concept in order to better understand the place and role of outdoor recrea- tion centres in urban regimes of living from the 1960s. To carry out this study, the author makes use of the archives of the Secretariat of State for Youth and Sports and the Institute of Development and Town Planning of the Paris Region.
