Parks and recreation[edit]

Parc-du-Lac Courcouronnes is a relatively large park with a walking trail and a small lake. It is home to the famous "Dame du Lac" climbing wall constructed by architect Pierre Szekely in 1975.[6] The wall has been closed to the public for the entirety of the 21st century, however, trespassers continue to use it regularly.
