Why come?


You will like
The Etang Saint-Ladre Nature Reserve is located at the gates of Amiens, in the Avre Valley, a tributary of the Somme. In 1979, it became the first site in Picardy to be classified as a state nature reserve.
The extraction of peat for heating, during the 18th and 19th centuries, created, in place of the meadows, the ponds that make up the reserve today. Other activities, such as cattle grazing, bleaching of cloths woven in the area and mowing of heliconias have also shaped the marsh and its ecological characteristics. A path allows you to discover the reserve in complete safety. (PRM access)

Restriction: the use of bicycles, mountain bikes, scooters, segways, gyrorou, hoverboards or rollerblades is prohibited within the perimeter of the reserve. Except for any machine necessary for the mobility of persons with reduced mobility.
