  • A beautiful place. There are lakes where you can watch turtles lying on the branches in the water and herons walking around. You can see ducks and swans as well. The forest is such a nice place for a walk during hot late spring and summer days. There are ice cream stands and a bar where you can sit and indulge in a coffee, or, if you're more of a sports type, you can go play on grass fields or have a picnic.
