A Garden ‘à la française’
Designed over two centuries ago, the Grand Jard is a French-style gardenwith a high degree of symmetry.
In the centre, there is a bandstand, around which many music and festive events regularly take place.Several ponds surrounded by paths lined with chestnut trees are ideal for strolling around and getting some exercise.
Walkers and runners love this place. At the end of the Grand Jard, the footbridge, which was entirely renovated in 2021, spans the canal and leads to the Jard Anglais. It offers an exceptional view of the Grand Jard and Saint-Etienne cathedral.
