At the intersection of the the route from the town center to the Enghein Lake, this public park is also part of the casino, covering its underground parking lot.
The partition of spaces inside the garden allows for different ambiences and activities.
The main lawn that underlines the perspective towards the lake and casino has become the meeting place for picnics, ball games and community events such as the jazz festival or the digital arts fair.
The grass garden is ideally oriented to get the sun near the great falls while the alleys of pergolas offer light shade. The tended courtyard stretches along the shops in an ambience of flowered undergrowth. The hedged, open shaped alleys accompany the paths from the outside towards the inside of the park.
They are made up of spectacular blossoming bushes that qualify them and create an event each season: profusion of flowers, leaves, fall colors, winter fruits.
