Around the lake of the Eaux Bleues, the Grand Parc Miribel Jonage invites us to bathe by its three fitted beaches for free (Le Morlet, La Baraka, Le Fontanil) and another one which is private in L'atol'. These four beaches are supervised daily.
The lake of the Eaux Bleues water, main lake of the Grand Parc, where nautical activities and bathing are done is produced by groundwater table. Regularly, it is controlled by the ARS (Regional Health Agency) of the Rhône and always has a very good quality. The lake of the Eaux Bleues is a drinkable water resource for the inhabitants of Greater Lyon.
With its 350m3 of white sand, L’atol’ beach also offers leisure areas entirely thought out for its users: deckchairs, fine sandy beach, play areas, striped and coloured beach huts, sun loungers, coconut parasols and picnic table.This year, the bathing zone has been extended thanks to the demand of the public.Beach lockers also have been setting up in order that everybody could leave his personal belongings.
There is 1 hectare of renatured and fitted area (so, the creation of a "green beach" and a "wooded beach").Playground slides have been installed on the green beach (no slide in water) and a beach volleyball court has been kept.A food stall is installed next to the nautical rental stall to offer a real place of services.

Apart from these instructions, we invite us to take note of the signals of bathing safety to the lifeguards.
• Protect yourself in the sun: sunscreen, cap, sunglasses
• Consider sensitive people: children and elderly
• While extreme heat, keep hydrated
• After a hearty meal, take the time to digest before bathing
• After a lengthy sun exposure, go into water gradually
• First of all, get wet neck and stomach
• Swim into supervised and fitted areas
• Use shoes to avoid any risk of cut
• Do not swim into a too cold water (less than 18°)
• Do not swim alone! Swimming with other people is more reassuring
• If you do not feel well, get out of the water quickly (shivers, pins and needles, cramps, pains...)
• Swim between 10 and 30 minutes to avoid any tiredness
