This wooded path will enable to take the visitor along the alive work composed of natural elements such as water and vegetation. The blue frame composing by water is one of the components of the site permitting to constitute a playful patrimony and animating nature in city through the creation of water paths or fountains where water will be captured for a moment and be back to its natural network. As well, the ambition is to establish a life area equipped with facilities creating meetings and interactions at the meeting point between city and forest.
