On the shore of the lake, at its southeast tip, he built a boat dock, which is still there today. Although fishing and bathing is now prohibited, the Pleso provides plenty of opportunities for relaxation, including boating and long walks along its perimeter with many benches, educational boards and workout spots. In winter, of course, the frozen pond serves the cross-country skiers.
