    - and medicinal and flower squares.

    On the remaining two-thirds of the site, visitors can discover a picturesque park laid out in the second half of the 19th century. Unlike the architectural gardens of the Renaissance, these offer a more 'natural', albeit carefully laid-out, vision of the countryside:
    - winding paths
    - groves adorned with rare species: ginkgo biloba, sequoïalendron, tulip tree, weeping beech, purple beech, etc...
    - pond and english river.
    - A national boxwood collection (153 varieties) approved by the CCVS (Comité des Collections Végétales Spécialisées) adorns the park's pathways.

    The park is also home to cast-iron sculptures inspired by 19th-century models, as well as contemporary works.
