    During the reclamation, a recreational area with beach and landscaped park was created around the lake and opened at the Expo 2000 on June 1, 2000. The leisure activities are for sunbathing and swimming and u. a. Well-received by sailors, windsurfers, kitesurfers, inline skaters and cyclists, the Cospudener See has become a popular recreational area. In recent years, it has been averaged by about 450,000 people per season. In the course of the Leipzig Olympic bid for 2012 competitions in rowing, triathlon as well as beach volleyball and extensive other leisure activities were planned at Lake Cospuden.

    As a "bathtub" or "Costa Cospuda" designate the Leipzig since 2000 accessible to the public bathing lake on the southern outskirts.

    The Cospudener See, today an area with enormous recreational value for the people of Leipzig and their visitors, is a former lignite mine. His name is associated with the memory of the place Cospuden. Until April 20, 1990, the total production amounted to 87 million tons of raw lignite, before the massive demand of the population and the citizens' initiative "Stoppt Cospuden" led to the closure.

    Well-developed roads, but do not want to drive in good weather on the weekend, because there are far too many pedestrians, so that one gets in each other's way.
