Park Moulin à Tan and Tropical greenhouses : This oasis of greenery, 10 hectares large, is located on the voutskirts of the town where the countryside begins. It is partly bordered by residential suburbs and forms part of the green belt wich will ultimately surround Sens.
A number of zones with very different uses (arboretum, animal enclosures, landscaped rose garden, woodland undergrowth with its characteristic plant life, fern garden, play areas, scented walkways) all fit coheswely into the park which was designed from the very beginning to be a natural, rustic open space which can also be used for leisure activities.
