Designed in an old quarry, this public garden will host the Heron Tree.
Cliffs, unique species, a particular orientation and sunshine on the banks of the Loire offer a unique site of 3.5 hectares, which already make the quarry of Misery in Chantenay, an extraordinary place. This unusual site was chosen in 2016 to create the “Jardin extraordinaire”, a public garden open on the Loire.
Since September the 28th, 2019 the western part of the garden already offers several walking paths, a 25-meter high waterfall and 2 footbridges crossing the pound. Overhanging the garden, a 7-belvedere route offers several exceptional points of view on the extraordinary garden and on the Loire River.
The complete opening of the Extraordinary Garden is planned for 2022/2023.
