The Épinal Castle and its Park Whether you are visiting Epinal or already living here, this place is unavoidable! Overlooking the historic centre, this large green area offers a breath of fresh air, whether you come for the remains of the castle, the English garden or to explore the animal park with your family.Some people go there for a run, to picnic and others to lay in the grass... Whether you are a sportsman or a stroller, alone or with your family, you have the chance to enjoy a place of relaxation in the heart of Epinal! A typical romantic place where you can see lovers or simple walkers who enjoy the sublime view over the city. Pushchairs, bicycles and scooters can move around in complete peace of mind thanks to the tarmac paths which have been laid out for everyone. Around the castle, a vegetable garden, beehives and vines reinforce the educational aspect of this site steeped in history, which witnessed the birth of the city. This park is also a children's paradise: they can have fun on the large playground or watch the various animals on the farm. In summer, various activities are offered: a show for families on Wednesdays with the “Epinal Bouge l'Eté” festival and the opening of a reading corner "annex de la BMI." The park of the castle can be accessed via the Tour Chinoise, the faubourg d'Ambrail, the Colombière or by strolling along the Chemin des Mulets which leads to the old town’s washhouse.
