Gardens and parks

 

Public gardens are laid out into walks for you to relax in, in the heart of the city:


- the Mail, place where the game of "mail" (ancestor of croquet)
  used to be played, with a panoramic view over the valley
- the Hôtel-Dieu gardens, shaded and with a games area
- the Léo-Lagrange flower garden with games for children

 


 

In the lower town, you can also enjoy


-the Grands-Moulins gardens established on the Ile de Chemars
 on the banks of the Loir. Here, one can discover the enchantment
 of an unrestricted view over the castle and a quiet spot for having
 a picnic

-the Bois des Gâts, a little further, accessible on foot or by car.
 Place for gentle walks and a starting point for treks, with a picnic
 area and bird-spotting area plus a botanical trail and health trail
 on the banks of the Loir

                                                                                 

 

The château's mediaeval garden (admission charge)


At the foot of the keep, this beautiful garden completes the discovery-trail devoted to mediaeval gastronomy.
Contained within fourteen squares surrounded by box hedging, more than a hundred species of plants known in the Middle Ages are cultivated, listed by use (food, medicinal, aromatic, household).
