There are numerous Natural spaces at Tours, spread all across the city: areas for rest, recreation, leisure, quiet walks, hobbies, discovering the environment, all just a few minutes from the city centre.
The ecological and landscaped restoration of these “oxygen parks”, true to their origins, has allowed Nature into the city, ensuring equal access to all the districts in the city, and consolidating the vital functions of greenery in developed areas:
- Embellishment: nature in the urban and suburban environment,
- Health: this natural inheritance airs the city,
- Psychological aspect: vegetation plays a calming role (allotment gardens for example)
- Social function: space for meeting, exchanges and entertainment.
