This area of the Rhone has a special interest for flora and fauna, and has a fine natural collection expressing a great variety of species and natural habitats.

The area is rich in trees and is a perfect spot for families and elderly people, who can enjoy a stroll. There is also an ideal health trail for joggers and walkers. Tables and stone benches are great for picnics in the shade of the tall trees.
