The Zemborzycki Reservoir on the river Bystrzyca was created in the years 1970 -1974 as part of so-called 'volunteer community service'. Currently, it is an excellent place for leisure, with its beaches, bars and restaurants, barbecue spots and playgrounds. A major attraction of the Reservoir area is “Słoneczny Wrotków” – a complex of modern swimming pools with slides, paddling pools and a pirate island for children. Water equipment, beach equipment and bicycle rentals are also available nearby. It is a perfect starting point for an exciting canoeing trip down the Bystrzyca River. If you do not feel like spending your time actively, you can just lie on the grass and contemplate the natural surroundings around you.

The city has prepared bicycle lanes and trails for cyclists. A particularly appealing route runs along the Bystrzyca River and around the reservoir. Another route, about 62 km long, runs from the city border to Nałęczów, and then further, across Wąwolnica to Kazimierz Dolny by the Vistula River.
