The upper part of this 15 ha park is sheltered from the floods of the Garonne. Inhabited since the XNUMXth century, it is distinguished by its chapel converted into a performance hall, its beautiful plantations and its playgrounds. In the lower part, a discovery trail allows the curious by nature to observe the fauna and flora of this wetland criss-crossed by esteys.
From the XNUMXth century, monks settled in the upper part of the park to protect themselves from the strong tides of the Garonne and organized an autarkic life. Six centuries later, the park is part of a vast agricultural estate called: Le Tourmalin.

The Balades à Roulettes® (BR®) are short, quiet walks, with a stroller or a small bicycle, or adapted for people with reduced mobility (in a wheelchair), offered by the French Hiking Federation of the Gironde.
