The flatland surrounding the town and the forest-clad scenery of the Hármas-Körös floodplain and its backwaters abound in a matchless variety of natural beauties and rarities. David Attenborough, the famous naturalist made a documentary film here on mayflies.
The floodplain of the Hármas-Körös river crossing the Körös-Maros National Park can boast of a most diverse flora and fauna and it is a popular destination of walking, cycling and water tours. The backwaters represent another natural value of the settlement. The 17 backwaters, created as the heritage of the large scale flood-control projects in the 19th century, all have their local color: some of them are free to approach from any direction and some are partially fenced off, their banks dotted with holiday homes. The Csudabala-puszta covering thousands of hectares is a conservation area of the Körös-Maros National Park. We can find in town the Elizabeth Park encircled by the Hantoskerti Backwater, the shady foliage of the Public Park in Endrőd and the Linden Tree Alley of Hősök Avenue, planted to the memory of the fallen heroes of World War I.
