On the eastern banks of the reservoir, those who like sunbathing and swimming find green grass lawns, a sandy beach as well as inflatable water attractions.

The bank of the water area is bordered by a four-kilometre course perfect for jogging and in-line skating. Visitors can also exercise on outdoor exercise machines. For lovers of other sports activities, the area offers the possibility of flying a kite or taking a ride on a boat as well as pedal boats.
