Grand Parc de Figuerolles - Paul LombardAvenue Du grand parc13500Martigues


The large park of Figuerolles is a territory of 130 hectares, where past agricultural activities have left many traces in terms of rural heritage and crops (olive trees, fruit trees ...).

This area has since been reclaimed by scrubland, pine forests and oak groves. The regular clearing of the park has encouraged the regrowth of hardwoods and the discovery of remnants of farms of the nineteenth century.

At the edge of the pond of Berre, the spray allowed the installation of a typical flora resistant to salt. The presence of an aquifer at the + 35m altimetric coast on the Figuerolles plateau has led to the appearance of trees and plants developing in a humid environment (white poplar, ash, elm, elder, fig tree ...) .

Nationally protected plant species abound throughout the site. In the large municipal park of Figuerolles, there is a significant amount of trees of great aesthetic value (umbrella pines, oaks, white oaks, olive trees, cypresses, fig trees ...)

The large municipal park of Figuerolles offers the public the discovery and recognition of about fifty of these plants belonging to different Mediterranean environments. They are spread over 27 stations of a 2 km loop trail, set in a remarkable natural environment.
