  • I should say… don’t go there espacially for watching birds and plants. The entrancefee is far to high for what you can see and experience. Just go by bike from St, Quentin to Crotoy and you will find....  more

  • Refreshing and uplifting pine forests, lakes with thriving bird life, luxuriant and well managed nature, wide skies. Signposted walks of varied lengths - and have a coffee or snack at the cafe.
  • Great display, small walk (max around 6km)
  • This park is well worth the visit, more so if you are a bird watcher. If your not into bird watching, then the walk is lovely. The cafe sold some fantastic food which some restaurants could not compete with. A real little gem for a wet land habitat. Even saw some musk rats.
  • A well set out system of paths leads through the park, with it's many hides and waters. Accessible for all. We saw spoonbills, herons, storks with young, stilts, avocets, and more. There are cranes sometimes in the season, but not yet during our visit. Parking is plentiful and there is a restaurant and picnic facilities. There are also guides who will point out birds and answer your queries.
  • Had a great day taking photos. Can easily spend a whole day.
