Park and garden

Extraordinary Garden

In the western part of the Miséry quarry in Chantenay

Designed in an old quarry, this public garden will host the Heron Tree.

Cliffs, unique species, a particular orientation and sunshine on the banks of the Loire offer a unique site of 3.5 hectares, which already make the quarry of Misery in Chantenay, an extraordinary place. This unusual site was chosen in 2016 to create the "Jardin extraordinaire", a public garden open on the Loire.

Since September the 28th, 2019 the western part of the garden already offers several walking paths, a 25-meter high waterfall and 2 footbridges crossing the pound. Overhanging the garden, a 7-belvedere route offers several exceptional points of view on the extraordinary garden and on the Loire River.

The complete opening of the Extraordinary Garden is planned for 2022/2023
