During the 2005 civil unrest in France, Savigny was the first city to implement a curfew. It is home to the Jean-Baptiste Corot High School, a twelfth-century château converted into a school and the former property of Marshal Davout.
The city hosts a baseball team called The Lions of Savigny-sur-Orge which plays at a national level.
