  • Très agréable avec mon chien que je promène, j'adore cet endroit relaxe et accueillant .Boisé exceptionnel, byciclette, jogging, tout est à portée de main. 
  • De toute beauté pour ceux qui, comme moi, aiment la beauté sauvage et pas manicurée. Toutes les saisons y sont belles! 
  • A great place for walks, there are beautiful views of the river. Very clean air. We were lucky with the weather, there was sunny and dry autumn. Very beautiful leaf. Walking a bit. MU arranged a small picnic on the grass. Held here about 3:00. Rested and mentally and physically.
