    A pretty big park that I took great pleasure in walking. far from everything, the park is more or less sheltered from noise (the highway is never far) but allows to see beautiful birds. There are many streams inside the park which is bordered by the Nive river.

    I put 5 stars because the place is very beautiful, however I am extremely surprised to see people practicing morning jogging in so-called preserved places

    accueil très sympathique, balade très agréable; lieu insolite, près de la ville. Par contre, c'est absolument mal indiqué.
