On the water
The 25 hectare water sports lake of Zilvermeer lies in a peaceful green corner of the park. On request and in a group you can take water sports lessons: sailing, kayaking, and surfing.
Our instructors will show you the ropes and then you can practise for real!
The lake is also an excellent diving location for beginners and experienced divers, young people and even disabled people. The "Atlantis" water sports centre and the new Pleasure boat harbour offer excellent facilities for water sports enthusiasts.
This project was supported financially by the European Union and by Flanders Tourism.
In the water
The water sports lake is only 15 metres deep so it is the ideal place to train divers. It is also an excellent place for trying out new techniques, equipment and apparatus. It is easy to practise and keep up diving techniques there. A diving bell and a molecule through which you can dive are fine "attractions" for divers. At Zilvermeer you can also learn to compass dive free of danger. The lake is not too big so you can always reach the shore without any problem.
The water sports lake is even accessible for disabled people. They can easily be moved in and out of the water using a special hoist.

Under the water
The low pH value of the water in the water sports lake means that there is no fauna or flora. But there is still lots to see under water! The peaceful underwater world is a splendid setting for discovering works of art. You can admire various paintings and sculptures at the bottom of the lake in the "Underwater park for fine art".
Against the backdrop of your own breathing, the irritations of your busy life melt away and you become one with the light, the water, the art ...
You can find more information on the site of the Underwater park for fine arts.
