This park, designed between May 1887 and December 1890 on the site of the old fortifications, was bequeathed by Miss Adèle Charruyer, daughter of Etienne Charruyer, shipowner. Walking enthusiasts will be able to stroll along these alleys lined with rare species or along the streams, drainage channels of the old ditches, fed by the rivers: the Lafond and the Fétilly. Families of ducks, fond of the stale pieces of bread thrown away by children, splash around for the delight of young and old.
