If you cannot find a way to amuse yourself on this enormous site, then pack your bags and head on home. Sound harsh? Maybe, but Bellerive-Plage is just like an amusement park but more wet! It has an Olympic-size swimming pool, a 10-meter high diving board, access to Lake Geneva, beach-volleyball courts, kids' games, cafes... The pools are supervised so bring the kids along. If you still don't feel like jumping in the water, no problem: sip something cool at the café overlooking the lake and take in the sights. Also note that weather and poor attendance may affect opening hours. Open hours may vary according to weather, so call ahead.
The Vidy Park harks back from the Exposition Nationale of 1964. The Vidy harbor, in the center of the park, encroached on Lac Leman (Lake Geneva) for the exhibition. West of the park you will find the Vidy pyramids, followed by the rowing club and Vidy's beach, which unfortunately receives the smells from the nearby sewage works from time to time. To the east, the small train from the 64 Exhibition entertains the children in Vidy's Parc du Théâtre. Further on, the swimming pool and Bellerive beach cater for water fanatics and the Voile d'Or's magnificent setting provides a perfect spot to stop for a drink.
AquaSplash Renens is a water sports park located west of Lausanne, but easily accessible by taxi and by public transport. Water parks like these are all the rage here in Switzerland.

There is also a place to get a massage and a proper work-out room.
