Ablon-sur-Seine is an urban commune located some 15 kilometres (9 miles) to the south-east of the centre of Paris immediately to the east of Orly Airport. As it is an urban commune there are numerous roads in the commune with the most important being the D266 going north to the Centre de Finances Publiques and the D29 / D246 / D2498 which run west to east along the south of the commune parallel with the Seine. The main railway from the Gare d'Austerlitz to Bordeaux runs south-west through the commune with the SNCF Ablon Station served by the Regional Express Network (RER) Line C.
The Seine river forms the whole southern border of the commune. The whole of the western border and the Seine are also the border between the Val-de-Marne and Essonne departments. There is no bridge from the commune across the Seine.

Ablon-sur-Seine was once located 4 leagues from Paris and still remains at the same distance - 10 km (6 mi).
The economic activity Ablon has always been linked to the river but a cropping part of its economy was favoured by its loamy soils. It has been traditionally a residential commune, with the urban area mainly residential.

(Not all data is known)
In 2010, the commune had 5,171 inhabitants. The evolution of the number of inhabitants is known through the population censuses conducted in the commune since 1793. From the 21st century, a census of municipalities with fewer than 10,000 inhabitants is held every five years, unlike larger towns that have a sample survey every year.[Note 1]
There is one private school called Sacred Heart.
Cultural events and festivals
From 2001 to 2008, Ablon has organised various cultural events. An independent association, It was once Ablon, organised these events to enable people to experience the history of the town and its inhabitants arouse a community spirit in Ablon people. Some events have left their mark on the town including the grand historical rally with themes such as "Discovering neighbourhoods", "the old trades of Ablon", "a Castle Mystery", etc..
Other cultural activities include the festival "Your Neighbours Have Talent", which hosted painters, sculptors, photographers, and musicians from the region. This festival also hosted young artists from the National Conservatory of Paris, artists, and recent graduates from fine art schools.
Another event highly appreciated by all generations of the city was cyber-Ablon, organized over a whole weekend. This event allowed the even the oldest people to learn office skills such as Internet browsing, email, Word, Excel etc. and for younger ones to come together for network games.
For 8 March, the association proposed an event to mark the International Day of Women's Rights (films, exhibition of paintings and photographs, conferences etc.). The municipal council took this activity under consideration.
Dormant since 2008, the life of the association has been suspended.

Notes and references
- At the beginning of the 21st century, the methods of identification have been modified by law No. 2002-276 of 27 February 2002 , the so-called "law of local democracy" and in particular Title V "census operations" which allow, after a transitional period running from 2004 to 2008, the annual publication of the legal population of the different French administrative districts. For municipalities with a population greater than 10,000 inhabitants, a sample survey is conducted annually, the entire territory of these municipalities is taken into account at the end of the period of five years. The first "legal population" after 1999 under this new law came into force in 1 January 2009 and was based on the census of 2006.
