Charles Trenet’s song ‘C’est un jardin extraordinaire’ (It’s an extraordinary Garden), could easily have been inspired by this park. It is indeed an enchanting site in the heart of the Winter Town. You can relax here and admire the majestic, one-hundred-year-old trees, stopping off at the beautiful white bandstand or the open-air theatre. You can also observe the amazing view over the Bay and the Summer Town, while children play cheerfully. It’s a haven for lovers or anyone who allows themselves the right to wander.
Outstanding botanic heritage
The park is a cool haven of peace and tranquillity; it has hosted an arboretum since 1992, with over 4 hectares of green treasures: rare or exotic plants and trees, and for a few weeks has been home to a beautiful rose garden with some 600 rose bushes. Sit down on one of the famous Arcachon red benches, then contemplate, breathe in and enjoy a soothing moment of serenity and contentment.
