Take the time to make the drive to this park. I live in Florida and have never seen this many flamingos. We were just going to do a quick stop, but ended up staying for several hours. Very peaceful and so much fun to watch...More

Perfect place to take photos of those beautiful birds and mammals, such as beavers and others! Only 7 Euros for the whole day if you wish and you can bring a pack lunch!

This was definitely a good place to visit in the area. Lots of nice walks and the parks main attraction the Flamingos. Plenty of descriptions in both French and English. It's hot in this area so start your visit early.
