The André Verbrugghe fishing ponds offer an ideal setting, generously wooded, surrounded by a shaded walking or running trail, and a sufficiently large body of water (4 hectares) to avoid tangling your lines.
Open from 1 April to 30 September from 8am to 8pm, from 1 October to 31 December and from 1 to 31 March from 8am to 5pm.
Daily or annual permit to be collected at "La Bonne Pêche", rue Faidherbe in Wattrelos - Information: +33 (0)3.20.02.85.33
The family pond corresponds to the sixth and last section of the Lion Park designed in the early 2000s.
The ponds are also used by the fishermen's association during the summer season and are ideal for restocking. To fish there, you need an annual permit (40 euros) or a daily ticket (6 euros) to buy at the shop "A la bonne pêche", 231 rue Faidherbe in Wattrelos (03 20 02 85 33). The site is connected to the Lion Park and is open from 8 a.m. to 7 p.m. from 1 April to 30 September, from 8 a.m. to 6 p.m. from 1 to 31 October and from 8 a.m. to 5 p.m. from 1 November to 31 March.
