Opt for the pleasures of bathing to cool off


The sun is shining, would you like to cool off? The 85-ha lake located within the Saint-Cyr Park offers numerous activities during the summer season, which allows you to enjoy the joys of being in the water.

Cool off in all safety: an area dedicated to monitored bathing, running along the sandy beach, marked by buoy lanes are extremely welcoming. Under the watchful eye of our rescue-swimmer team, who monitors the bathing spot from 10 a.m. to 7 p.m. on Wednesdays, Saturdays and Sundays in June and every day during July and August, swim, jump, splash about … relax! A Tiralo, (amphibian chair) is also at your disposal at the aid post, on demand, for people with reduced mobility.
