Orléans la Source Floral Park: a natural moment
Located 60 km from Orléans, this magnificent park was created in 1963 on the source of the Loiret, the smallest tributary of the Loire. The origin of this spring has long been the subject of controversy, but it is in fact a resurgence of the Loire. The water follows underground galleries for about 40 km before bursting out of the ground to feed the Loiret. The Floral Park covers 35 hectares, and as you walk through it, you will discover a display of plants and animals. For children, many activities are offered.
