Its close to the autoroute, thus easy access. Parking easy to find in the surrounding Streets, if you do not want to pay the 7$ parking. In the winter, its great. Free sliding. Free downhill skying courses for 5-10 years old. Ice skating is free and very cheap to rent skates. Just a wonderful place
