On the edge of the Sologne hills and the plain of Val de Loire, the Parc Floral de la Source is the work of many generations of gardeners in the horticultural tradition of the Loiret region. The park has thousands of trees, many centuries old, criss-crossed with splendid pathways leading to gardens featuring an ever-increasing number of botanical collections. The ‘Jardin Remarquable’ has gardens devoted to irises, roses and dahlias, a vegetable garden, fuchsia collection and lots more.
The park is also home to 350 animals, mostly birds from Africa, Oceania and Asia, plus a butterfly house. A crazy golf, play parks, picnic areas, little train and quadricycles complete the range of attractions and facilities.
