Details

This was the first public garden to be created in Dijon.
It was here that the Dijon engineer, Henri Darcy designed a reservoir to supply the town with drinking water in 1838. In honour of this work, the architect Emile Sagot built a neo-Renaissance monument which survives to this day. In 1880 the architect Félix Vionnois laid out a garden on top of the reservoir, reflecting the taste of the time. This haven of peace is much frequented by the townspeople and the many tourists flocking to Dijon.

The bear greeting you at the entrance of the garden is a copy due to the sculptor Henri Martinet (1937), intended as a tribute to the Burgundian sculptor François Pompon, a native of Saulieu.

Layout: terraces with balustrades, pools, waterfalls.

Vegetation: numerous plant varieties, beautiful flower beds.
Features: playground, numerous benches, pool.
