Lakes for swimming - All around Gers are "leisure centers" (base de loisirs) - artificial lakes with swimming, water slides, children's pools, lifeguards, sandy beaches, canoeing, pedal boating, playgrounds, and picnic areas. Spend an afternoon relaxing at the lakes at Gondrin, Lectoure, Lupiac, Marciac, Mirande, Plaisance, Saint-Clar, Thoux-Saint-Cricq. In Mirande, there's also a large waterpark, called Ludina, with water slides, whirlpools, children's pool, volleyball, ping pong and grassy areas, snack bar.
Tip: Museums in Gascony often close between noon and 2:00pm, as well as food shops (shop for your picnics before noon).
