This place is like a piece of heaven on Earth. There are many seats and tables around for a picnic or barbeque. Great place for great pictures in mother nature. You can rent bikes or take a walk around the lake.

An awesome place to spend a beautiful day in the nature around the lake and in the forest mountains, services are available, vehicle parks, restaurant, cafe, toilets, mosque, barbecue places, play grounds, cycling.. etc. and the first view when you enter the lake is marvelous. A must visit place.. specially with your family

Make sure to have a picnic there or at least have a coffee there! A walk around the lake is a must .... for a barbecue picnic all supplies are available in the park with a reasonable price!
