Walk around the Lake of Créteil

A beautiful walk around the Lake easily accessible by public transport from Paris.

To get to the departure of the walk you can get off at the metro station "Pointe du lac" (line 8) then you have to walk a few minutes on a pedestrian path to reach the Lake. The walk around the lake is very easy and very nice. This isn't really the countryside. Many buildings are along the way but it's what makes the charm of the place. You can do the tour full of the lake or well just stay on a one side of the lake. Feel free to discover the Créteil lake.
