Cultivated since the Middle Ages by the hortillons, these gardens "on the water", accessed exclusively by boat, are hemmed in by the arms of the Somme and Avre rivers and extend over 300 ha, in the communes of Rivery, Camon, Longueau and Amiens. The plots of land are criss-crossed by canals, or "rieux", which can be navigated by flat-bottomed boats known as "à cornets". These are characterized by their sloping bow to facilitate docking without damaging the banks. They were once used to transport vegetables. Visits are organized in the afternoons from April to October, to discover the flora and fauna depending on the season. A video presentation of the site is available at the reception desk.
