Jardins à thème
La promenade des jardins, ou promenade cinématique, se déroule comme une pellicule de film jetée au hasard sur le parc.
Le regard du promeneur découvre, selon des cadrages successifs, une suite de douze jardins thématiques délimités par des passerelles et, la nuit, par un pointillé lumineux. Selon son humeur, le promeneur peut arpenter différentes configurations de jardins : aires de jeux, terrains plantés d'arbres, éléments sonores, ambiances aquatiques et espaces intimistes propices à la réflexion.
Jardins Passagers
Créés en 2001, les jardins passagers ont été inspirés par l’exposition « Le Jardin planétaire », présentée en 1999 dans la Grande halle par le paysagiste Gilles Clément dont l’intention était de sensibiliser le public aux grandes questions d’écologie. A l’emplacement de l’ancienne halle aux moutons, cet îlot écologique de 3000m² abrite des écosystèmes variés : bosquet, friche, mare, et mur en pierres sèches. Jardins écologiques à vocation pédagogique et solidaire, les jardins passagers servent de supports à des ateliers pédagogiques de sensibilisation à la biodiversité à destination des petits et grands. Cet état d’esprit favorise l’expérimentation de méthodes de culture biologique et une observation plus attentive du vivant.
