Thanks to the magic of a Mediterranean climate, which left their characteristics in many habitats worldwide, the Promenade invites to a botanical trip without jetlag, with promises of flowering trees each season. • Des arbres, arbustes, plantes de tous les continents se sont donnés rendez-vous le long de cette promenade. L’agence Péna Paysages est le Maître d’œuvre de cette réalisation. Grâce à la magie d’un climat méditerranéen, dont on retrouve les caractéristiques dans de nombreux biotopes à travers le monde, la Promenade invite à un voyage botanique sans décalage horaire, avec des promesses d’arbres en fleurs à chaque saison.modifier ”
