    Completely open to its surroundings, the Grand Parc de l'Embanie is a pleasant place to stroll, with wide-open spaces, remarkable trees, playgrounds and a sports area, the Moulin and Frocourt streams, pony pastures and allotments at the entrance.

    A discovery trail through the Grand Parc, starting from the events area, leads to 13 specimens identified by a signposting sheet. The remarkable row of tetter willows lining the Frocourt and Moulin streams is worthy of note for the number of trees in an urban area. They also constitute a natural reservoir of biodiversity. The majestic stature of the three-hundred-year-old oaks can be seen from the chemin de la grande charrière or the bois Banal, where you can get up close and personal. There are benches at every step, allowing visitors of all ages to relax and admire the surrounding flora and fauna.

    Another point of interest in the park is the Etang de l'Embanie, a 3,000 m2, 2-metre-deep artificial lake created at the end of 1970. It is fed by the Moulin stream. The banks of the pond are covered with a varied vegetation where rare species (Bald Cypress), shimmering shrubs and luxuriant grasses blend harmoniously. The site is home to numerous plant and animal species, typical of the region's natural heritage. The landscape changes with the seasons.

    The Parc de l'Embanie is also a lively place for families, with regular events such as Saveurs Nature, the Easter egg hunt and Saint-Jean bonfires.
