The Commune of Blegny results from the merger of the communes of Barchon, Blegny-Trembleur, Housse, Mortier, Saive and Saint-Remy, on January 1, 1977. Thus was born the « Grand Blegny », while « Blegny » was first a small hamlet of Trembleur (whose name goes back to the Roman antiquity of Blanius). This « entity » with semi-rural and hilly landscapes has an area of 2607 hectares. As of January 1, 2018, its population is 13,311 inhabitants. Over the last forty years, the municipal institutions have been responsible for numerous sports infrastructures and the promotion of sport at school, through internships and via clubs and associations. On its track built in 2003 and soon on the one under construction at Saive Barracks, BMXing Park Blegny is an excellent example.
