It's a wonderful place with many picnic and photo opportunities. Suitable for a nice refreshing dip in the summer. Lots of wonderful view-point close to the dam. Oh and grilled fish in restaurants in Dukan town is to die for!

This is a popular place for people to escape the city and relax in a relatively quiet atmosphere in the area of a large lake and swim and engage in various watersports, especially during the summer when the temperature soars.

Nice river with loads of music and families having barbecues. There are speed boats to go on and lots of shops along the lake. Take your own bbq and hire a space. A nice day out and is about 40 mins from the city.
