If you're staying in La Rochelle this is a locals dog walk to a park that aims to mix the best of English parkland design with the practicalities of the Atlantic climate and strong winds. Peaceful and really lovely.
Parking in the centre is easiest in the P&D car parks or on-street with meters.
Lots of bars, restaurants and cafes with outside tables where dogs can join you, and many have bowls of dog water.
How to get there
Full Walk Details
The easiest way to find the park is to follow the old city walls on the signed leisure path and then bear right when you see the trees on rue Delmas.
The park has only been established since the late 1960s, but there's a calm and peaceful atmosphere and plenty of shade in summer. The paths are easy to follow.
