The Roches Blanches Park is a peaceful place for relaxation and fun for locals and tourists.
It is an integral part of the town’s history as evidenced by the fossilized oyster beds in the eastern part of the park. Dating from around 15 million years ago (Miocene), according to some, these oysters gave the town its name, ‘Ostreion’ designating a bed of oysters in Greek. These oyster beds show that this park was under an immense sea for a very long time.

It is a crossing point for the ‘Amongst town and nature’ and the ‘From one great view to another’ hikes.
