+ 55% more visitors, a new summer record!

02.09.2022

This season, the park had a historic summer with attendance up 55% from the record-breaking summer of 2019. The giant mosaic sculptures and the Terra Nocta nighttime event, the two major new features of this year, will be at the heart of the activities of an exceptional Autumn Festival that will take place from October 22 to November 6.

"The beginning of the season provided more than encouraging indicators, thanks in particular to the attraction of our visitors for the new attractions. But the summer was particularly exceptional with a record attendance of +55%," said Pierre Watrelot, the park's director. "The teams mobilized to receive this historic influx and visitors were seduced by the new experiences: the arrival of extraordinary animals in topiaries or giant mosaics, the cycle of conferences on biodiversity and a 2nd edition of the festival Les Envolées Végétales which found a large audience.

25,000 visitors discovered Terra Nocta

But the most obvious success for the park comes from the Terra Nocta nocturne, which has exceeded 25,000 visitors even though it only started on July 14. "The feedback is very positive and those who have not yet been able to enjoy this poetic moment will be able to do so on the first three Saturdays of October and every evening during the All Saints' Day vacations during the Autumn Festival. This Fall Festival will close a season rich in activities and novelties. "It is increasingly one of the favorite moments of our visitors, with the beauty of autumn foliage, the decoration of the park's paths with its thousands of colorful cucurbits and plants. Not to mention its Halloween atmosphere and animations that captivate young and old alike.
