On my previous post I published a few photos of our walk across the River Seine. I mentioned a peaceful garden with myriads of flowers locally called ‘Parc du Dispensaire’, Sartrouville. Here are a few other photos of this beautiful place.


Spring at the Parc du Dispensaire, Sartrouville

The last stage of our promenade in Sartrouville took us to the peaceful Parc du Dispensaire.

The Parc du Dispensaire covers 2.75 hectares and has the charm of an old town-centre park. It includes two well equipped playgrounds and many benches to relax.

The harmoniously laid-out grounds of the Parc du Dispensaire consists of a peaceful green area with flower beds, flowering shrubs, and majestic trees, not far from the railway station and the River Seine.

To see hundreds – if not thousands – of narcissus and daffodils was quite an unexpected sight. The narcissus flower is identifiable by its outer white tepals with a central yellow corona.

Another section of the garden was used to grow pine trees and flowering shrubs such as heather, rhododendrons as well as red poppies.

Sartrouville is easily accessible from Paris by the RER A line. It takes less than 20 minutes to reach the station from central Paris. Another interesting site to discover is the 1000 year-old church of St. Martin (25-30 min. walking distance from the station).
