The shore was beautiful in the sunshine, there was a big playground, a little paddle pool, a minigolf that looked like fun but also eg the opportunity to rent kayaks, which we contemplated for a while. But then we opted for a few very affordable opportunities not found everywhere: the little railway kids could have a ride on for 20 cents, and playing with sailing boats in an own pool, rent also 20 cents.
