Its 47 hectares are part of a 230 hectares forest area.
The Departement acquired the forest in 1977. This suburban forest offers a natural setting favorable for open-air activities (walking, cycling…) and to discover forest ecosystem.
The dominant tree species are deciduous (common and sessile oaks, chestnut trees…) and pine-trees (Scotch pines). It offers varied natural habitats of interest : a wooded heathland or a forest pond with rich vegetation which makes it a place of reproduction for amphibians (toads, frogs, spotted salamanders, webbed or marbled newts…) and different species of dragonflies
Raptor birds also use the area as a reproduction or hunting site.
The forest also houses mammals as roe deer and badgers.
