The Saint-Cyr leisure park, a nature and sports station
Certified Nature and Sports Station since 2020, the Saint-Cyr Park offers numerous sport and outdoor activities, supervised by graduated monitors, at the heart of protected nature.
Here you will be able to do terrestrial activities as well as water activities, surrounded by nature. Enjoy a revitalizing moment with friends or family for everyone’s delight, kids, adults, sporty people or nature lovers!
Enjoy the greenplaces around the lake to relax
Escape cities’ frenetic pace during a day or an afternoon by taking a break in the green oasis at the Saint-Cyr Park.
Your children will be delighted to try the various structures of the kid’s playground designed for little and big kids: according to their age, they will have the opportunity to test the climbing structures, the slides or the rope net pyramid.
If you are willing to stretch your legs, follow the hiking trail around the lake, on foot or by bike. A 4.7 km stroll awaits: little markers show you the distance travelled.
If you would like to exert yourself, bring your ball! The city-stade and the beach-volley and sandball grounds will allow you to unwind while playing soccer, handball, basketball and volley-ball…
If you are eager to explore and think, the Park offers an orienteering course: Have a look at the map on the esplanade at the entrance of the Park.
The equipped sandy beach, that goes alongside the monitored bathing area, and the pétanque strip will enable you to relax with friends and family.
You have opted to spend the day at the Park and to have lunch or dinner on site: tables, benches and barbecues are at your disposal on the two partly shady picnic areas (one being located next to the big car park and the other one near the peninsula). Picnic tables suitable for persons in a wheelchair are also set up.
All that remains is to bring your kebabs!
Nature enthusiasts won’t be outdone: 3 fishing areas are available for you to set up and practice catch-and-release fishing (No-kill).
The Saint-Cyr Bird Sanctuary, located at the heart of the Park, also opens its doors to you. Thanks to the 5 observatories, and to the guided tours offered by the volunteers of the Poitou-Charentes antenna of the Bird protection association (LPO), come and meet the birds who live together in the reserve or stop there during their migration.
Opt for the 2021 two-wheeler novelty: with Trott’in Poitou, go for a ride with a cross country electric scooter within or outside the Park, with a departure in the Park.
Let’s meet next to the big car park: an off-roader scooter and a helmet will be given to you. Combine nature, speed and pleasure!
Cost: 25 €/hour. Available for young and old alike, from 6 years old.
The Saint-Cyr Park offers leisure and relaxation activities for the whole family!
