The “Parc de l’Aleu”:
Along the Rémarde river between the “Château de l’Aleu” and the “Moulin Neuf”, the park was designed by Adolphe Alphand in the 19th century and has a remarkable exotic and indigenous green heritage. The park’s strategic position mixes diverse users, walkers, hikers, families, but also young people since adjoining the sports complex
It constitutes a portion of the GR 655 « Chemin de Saint Jacques de Compostelle » (from Chevreuse to Rambouillet) and as such is a showcase of the living environment of the South Yvelines for hikers. You can appreciate this exceptional place while preserving the quality of the landscape and the biodiversity development.
