rhododendronThis park modelled during the 19th century, was trial zone for experimenting the growing of different exotic trees for the count of the "Canal du Midi" administration.

The park and gardens of Lampy have been neglected for over 40 years.

Des séquoias

Though, today, with the precious help of the French national forest office (ONF) and the European rural development program (PDZR-1993), it has been restored, finding again its paths. (Sequoiadendrons, giants Thujas, Cypresses of Lawson, Virginia tulip tree, Chilian Araucaria ….)

Some new species have been planted recently: (Gingko bilobas, Negundo maple trees, Cedars of the Himalayan and Lebanon, bohemian olive trees, liquidambar from Louisiana…)Fables de la Fontaine

The Arboretum is open to the public all year long, (commented and guided visit possible on demand).

You can also enjoy of "the route of Lafontaine" which is a special kind of course where you are going for a walk along the different paths, on which you can take a rest, and read the Fables(in French though), and admire magnificent outdoor paintings realised by Madeleine Neyret. Philosophy teacher Anne Boudet will comment the texts
