CAMIFOLIA, the medicinal and aromatic plant (Flowers and perfumes galore) : This park, situated in the City Hall Park and created in 1976, was renovated in 1988 due to a request from the local producers.
Today, stretching out upon nearly a hectare, it is made up of two distinct parts: - the first and oldest one, includes a collection of almost 350 species or varieties of plants.
- the second one can be found on a small island on the river Hyrôme where all the variety of the locally produced plants are presented together.
