Le Paquier is the large lawn by the lake, where most events in Annecy take place. On the day of visit, there was a ski jump competition, quite unexpected but attracting crowds.

This is part of the parks around the lake. It has lovely lawns and promenades. One can walk around or picnic. It's a lovely area to watch the activities on the lake and also play in the lawns.

Beautiful park for nice walks, near the lake, or for biking tours with friends, or for many other activities; nice nature for a pic-nic, to invite the visitor to play, dream or to discover; large extension of grass where you can relax.
