The lake is home to various plant species and rare and endangered animals such as pyg my water lily, the leaf rosoli round, comaret, smart weed or the common toad.
A wood shaving covered path leads along the lake and educational boards inform you on the specificity of this natural site. Two giant board games invite you for amusing games !
