After exploring the Château de la Verrerie, one of the most iconic landmarks of town, discover its large, beautiful 27-acres open park in which you will encounter an animal enclosure, a children’s playground, ponds and species of trees from all over the world. Indulge in a stroll through the French gardens and simply enjoy the natural landscapes surrounding you.

Reach for the heights of Le Creusot where you will find the leisure park Le Parc des Combes with many attractions and a range of rides for all members of the family. Walkers will appreciate the hiking paths and all visitors can enjoy the stunning panoramic views over the town of Le Creusot from the viewpoint.  

Just outside of town, the nearby lakes of Montaubry, Le Breuil, and Torcy cater perfectly for lovers of water sports, swimmers or anglers alike. The impressive Saint-Sernin dam is also a perfect departure point for no less than 11 hiking trails to fully immerse yourself in nature.
