From the Tip of the point to the rocky ridge, through the embankment and the clay flat, each sector offers interesting and varied ecosystems. The orchard with its rows of apple trees is located in the heart of a natural amphitheater formed by the steep banks of the river and the buildings of the city center.
Its forest is dotted with clearings, wetlands, streams, small waterfalls, a pond, a continuous vault of deciduous and coniferous trees, undergrowth plants and rocky outcrops covered with carpets of mosses and ferns. The many attractions of this green space are one of the great riches of the Agglomeration of Rivière-du-Loup and an important natural heritage for its citizens.
