  • It’s a nice to have a pic nic or try the restaurants near by the lake, you can go there and disconnect from the sounds of the city, you can run, walk or work out, theres a lot of trees a lot of green areas, an amusement park.
  • Be early in the morning. A perfect place to have a walk or just watch some friendly duck and dogs. Bring some crackers and cookies for them... Nice place to visit
  • Nice place to relax,😊😉
  • Wonderful place, especially if you just want to relax and let yourself go.If you can, try to rent a boat, believe me, you won't regret it.
  • Fabulous for a day of walking with the green nature surrounding the lake. Besides, I liked this concrete railing with a spectacular view in the background.
