Parc des Graves park



Developed and protected, the Parc des Graves is a park offering 800 metres of pedestrian walkways, benches, picnic tables, play areas for children and a belvedere offering fine sea views.

The site boasts wild plant species, the vestiges of bygone ornamental gardens, together with more recently planted areas and ponds. The ‘Hôtel des Graves’ is now home to ducks and moorhens. The park is also home to six goats, known as ‘de Fossés’ goats and nicknamed ‘bramble devourers’ for their capacity to eat a wide variety of plants. Their mission is to clear the entire surface and to stop the proliferation of bramble bushes and other invasive species on the site. More recently, five Warré hives were installed in the park to encourage the repopulation of Calvados’ black bees.
