A great place for hiking and biking in the summer and for skating and sledding in the winter.


Don’t miss the park’s star bird, the European starling. This brown-feathered bird is renowned for its ability to mimic the songs of other birds. As you stroll through the park, discover a variety of cultural exhibitions being presented in different areas of the park all year long.  

Petanque courts - 2023 season starting in May

Two petanque courts are available during the park’s opening hours. Holders of a playing permit have priority for reservations. This permit is free of charge. To get one, you must complete a form (available in French only) at least five days before you want to reserve the court. Questions? Write to [email protected].
