The Association des Amis de Saint Symphorien, the way forward

The Association des Amis de Saint Symphorien aims at renovating the Parc before the opening to the public.

By creating the association, the desire was to make the project of Saint Symphorien wider open to all those who love the park and want to help the implementation of an ambitious project. And it is now more than 75 persons who actively support the project as participants or volunteers. If you like the park, the project can become your project. Join us!

To begin reviving the Park in the region, and to raise funds to accelerate renovations, the Association opened exceptionally the Park for 4 days in 2012, 10 days in 2013 and 30 days in 2014.
These openings were a great success.
The atmosphere, entertainment and all the events of the opening day are visible on the News page.
For 2015, the Association continues its momentum by giving greater scope to its action in opening the park even more between May and September and providing new spaces for visitors to discover.

Whether you love parks, animals or art, or the three of them, help us reviving this great place and creating a unique discovery park.
