The Jacques Vernier leisure park: nature and leisure at for young and old

On the road to Tournai, near the Gayant Expo and close to Douai city centre, is the Jacques Vernier leisure park. This magnificent green space boasts over 50 acres to explore plus a 50,000 square metre lake! Head here for a delightful day of relaxing strolls and physical activities…

A preserved natural area

Alternating between landscaped areas and wild areas, the Jacques Vernier Park boasts three walking routes. During the walk, young and old will have the chance to see an incredible diversity of birds. The lake, the natural area and the marsh attract many species. Keep your eyes peeled, as some of them are extremely rare. Perfect for all abilities and fitness levels, sweet and savoury snacks are waiting for you in a nice chalet with a terrace…

Activities galore!

The Jacques Vernier Park is also a place full of activities:

– pedal boats: 2 or 4 seats, for a water adventure.

– family boats: enjoy a small electrically-powered boat.

– trampolines: 4 trampolines allow you to jump up to 7 metres high. Sensations guaranteed!

– Rosalies: explore the park from the comfort of a 4-seater pedal car.

– Pedal go-kart: like the Rosalies, but with a single seat, at ground level like a F1 champion!

– disc golf: throw the Frisbee at the metal baskets. But beware of the obstacles…

– orienteering: equipped with a map, connect the markers placed in the park on courses of 1-2.5 km.
