    We did the tour on foot. An informative stroll with nice specimens of birds in the swamp and elsewhere. Good explanations on the flora and fauna picnic Air and possibility to eat on the spot. Dog on a leash would miss a garbage can along the course

    Family with 2 teenagers walk (11-15 years) including 1 very interested in birds. Simple visit the park without punting. Count €31 4 (3 adults, 1 child fare rates). Picnic in the Park (which has a few areas to picnic with 3 to 5 tables), taste the restaurant in the Park. The most:-a family walk very often shaded, in the heart of a natural area not concreted (however battered dirt roads allow to use a stroller without difficulty), - with lots of information about these birds and flora that are quickly read, especially for children (who must respond to a questionnaire at the beginning of visit; however lacked us information about the causes of the disappearance of certain species and predators). We put about 2 h / 2 h 30 to go around quietly and read all the signs. And finished our walk at the Park restaurant (type guinguette) by a ball of icecreams (very good). The concept of the restaurant promotes local, artisanal and organic products. Rare enough to be noted and welcomed! Least, preventing me from putting a better appreciation:-the Park deserves a refreshment side infrastructure: picnic in the Park tables very damaged for some, mesh doors who have lived well and who are often fixed, with bits of junk which exceed and can be dangerous for children, scraps of plastic pipes hanging around and could be removed , a bottle of gas used likely to burn the weeds left in the park without special security (which should be placed at the opening to the public) and of the information tables that need to be repainted. -Regarding the birds, a lot of ducks, geese and geese, and eventually many more migratory species of truly local species. -Finally a little effort on the spelling would be welcome (several shells found on the signs, even if it does not detract from the information given). Many birds in aviaries in which we enter and who are prevented from migrating (I am thinking of the storks; one more for some, one minus for others). In the end a private and family business which we feel interest in birds and the desire to pass on his passion, but who would benefit from better maintain the Park (by simple efforts to be implemented).
