The bird hill floral park tells the story of an old municipal dump that has become a green and flowery park, offering a superb panorama of the city of Caen. How could such a mutation have happened? To do this, we have to go back to the early 1970s, when the start-up of the new incineration plant made it necessary to ask the question of the future of the old installation which, originally located in the immediate vicinity of the city, ended up being integrated in favor of urban development. The idea of ​​the park was born then. To bring it to life, it will take significant inputs of topsoil to cover the rubbish deposits, before being able to undertake no less extensive planting campaigns. Inaugurated on the occasion of the 50th anniversary of the Landing, the bird hill floral park aims to be a place of relaxation and leisure, but also a place to raise awareness of sustainable development. Having managed to see the light of day without denying its history, it is today an essential place for the inhabitants of the agglomeration, with its 17 landscaped hectares comprising an exceptional rose garden, a vast body of water as well as numerous leisure spaces . It also offers a very beautiful panorama of the city of Caen. To discover from May to September!
