It is home to many nesting and / or wintering water birds that you will discover from the observation posts or from the landscaped path that runs along it.

Chance on seeing Common Kingfisher, Common Pochard, Ferruginous Duck, Osprey and Black Kite.



From Toulouse, drive south on E80/A64 up to Roques-sur-Garonne, then take the D817 road toward Muret and turn left to Frouzins (D42). Before entering Frouzins turn right (Lac de Lamartine sign).

The lake is 17 km south of Toulouse.
