The best kept secret in St Quentin

is an area between the railway and canal, right beside the town centre.


Parc d'Isle

The Parc d'Isle is big (47.52 hectares). It contains lakes, marshes, orientation course, a farm, and other environmentaly-friendly areas. Entrance is free.





Despite the blustery, wet weather, we managed an hour's walk along the main footpath (through the topiary) before the rain swept in again.



This is a wonderful resource, right on our doorstep (gunwales) and something we mean to make more use of during our visits to the boat.
