  • Drove past and stopped for a snack. Parking is free of charge. A great place to relax on the road, or spend the day lounging on the grass. People a little bit. There are benches right on the beach, bike paths, playgrounds. Swimmers are not seen, but kayaking people dissect. Apparently, you can rent them. Many wild ducks and other birds.

  • Your choice is on the grass, a bench or the sand, the Sun, the shade, you will find where you sit facing the Lake. Facilities for bathing, playing parties. Circumnavigate the Lake by bike or with the nautical base. And free parking, which is not the case of all the Lakes!

  • When reading the previous reviews we can have the impression that the Lake is invaded with algae and other plants. With regard to the beach a big effort seems to have been done to make the corner for swimming (!) swimming At the beginning of the season it's nickel, let's see how this will evolve until September. And then not too crowded at the moment despite the heat. Don't listen to the killjoy who claim that rats haunt Lake Kir, the most formidable species still human with his unpredictable behavior. For the time fish are the resistance. Note rental of sun loungers and umbrellas (1 euro each). The kids are the same holes in the sand and semblants of Castle and the Mediterranean. When there is not too much megaphone animations in the vicinity, the place is very bucolic with ducks, geese and other waterfowl of all kinds (!) The downside is the railway nearby (in height) and especially cars, but this year they are somewhat channelled and a few decibels have been lost... To get to the Lake from the City Center (near the station): bus B12 direction Plombières (more or less three buses per hour). Or bike path along the canal. Or on foot, about 3 kilometres from the train station.
