Mediterranean Garden

Garden, Botanical garden


Located near the Saint Sulpice chapel and overlooking the etang de l’Olivier, the Mediterranean garden was developed from 1997 by Istres’s Green Areas department. It is home to one hundred varieties of plants and bushes from the Mediterranean basin.
A key element behind our 4-flower award for the ‘Villes & villages fleuris’ label, the Mediterranean garden offers a unique and perfect setting for a walk. When the fair weather arrives, come and stroll through this garden which offers a superb panorama on the etang de l’Olivier and its water jet. With more than 100 species from the Mediterranean basin, the garden features a high-quality plant environment. An ideal choice for family outings.

Visits can be booked with a botanical specialist, through the tourist office.
