L’étang de M. Gentil

Halfway between a landscaped garden and a natural setting, entertain yourself through a range of environments.
Wander along the Barangeon (first category river), fish on the pond, discover the bamboo forest, have a picnic in the park… Everything to make you enjoy the moment at the sound of running water and singing birds.

More than just a place to rest, our hostesses offer a range of activities within the park throughout the year.

Lenght of stroll: 20 min but you may wander longer…
The park is free to access all year long (river banks are out of bounds when it swells)
Set with picnic tables and benches.

Ask for your visitor’s map at the reception of the Site de la Maison de l’Eau or download it here.
