City escape

There's 3 path that offer something different. It can be a bit hard to get a good view to some of the animals. It's free so a great way to experience the nature. one of the path is wheelchair friendly and about 2.5 km long.

Great place to ride to and around
Jan. 2020 • Family
We hired bikes and rode,about 22km return to the train station. It's a lovely ride along the canal/River on a flat and easy path, although as you get closer you may need Google maps as the signage wasn't super clear. The park itself has walking only, and cycling paths through bird watching areas, waterways and boardwalks.It was lovely way to spend a sunny Saturday afternoon out of the busy city area. Apart from the refundable deposit on the bikes, they were very cheap. Highly recommended for those who want to see more than tourist attractions but don't have transport.

Brilliant visit at the end of Montpellier Tram line 3
Mar. 2019 • Couples
At the end of Line 3 (Lattes extension) - trams every 13 minutes during the day from the St Roch Railway Station stop - an easy and pleasant walk of 30 minutes takes one from the adjacent Tourist Information almost in a straight line south to the Maison de la Nature. The exhibition room is a good experience and very child friendly. From there the walks (flat and accessible for wheelchairs) along the river bank and between lakes and the lagoon are a real treat. We saw storks nesting at close quarters, stilts and other waders, herons, egrets and shelducks on a nest, as well as a coypu!

If you like walking in between the lakes, this is for you
Nov. 2018 • Couples
A very nice walk through and around the salt lakes where an abundance of animals live. Several species of birds, of course, small mammals, flore rich and plentiful, small fish, some big ones from time to time... a delightful afternoon.

Flamingos
Aug. 2018 • Family
Reminded me of parts of the Florida intercoastal in some ways. The main attraction was that my wife and children wanted a close up view of the Flamingos, which can be seen from the D21/D162 roads. If your on holiday and havn't seen Flamindos before, go for it!

A good site for birdwatching near Montpellier
Apr. 2017 • Solo
This is the only easily accessible bird reserve near Montpellier that is open to the public. I have visited it regularly over the last 18 months, at least once a month. The best season is spring, when the migratory birds arrive and they are starting to nest. There is a large breeding group of white storks in trees and on platforms built near the entrance. They are quite used to people so they are easy to photograph in all stages of their life cycle.They remain in winter and roost on the open marshland in the reserve where I have seen more than 30 birds at once. There are some paths through the reserve and a few hides next to small lakes where you can see flamingos, herons, egrets, stilts, avocets (though they aren't that common here) and shelducks. I once saw a purple gallinule (also called a swamphen) and a spoonbill. European bee eaters are quite common in the area in summer. There are lots of coypu. There is a board at the entrance with photographs of the birds seen at the reserve. You will definitely need binoculars and a telescope would be good, as many of the waders and ducks on the lakes are a long way away. The only problem with the reserve is that it doesn't open until 9 am and a lot of people use it as a place to walk and talk at weekends, quite loudly. I get there by cycle from Montpellier along the cycle path by the river Lez, but you can take a tram to Lattes, at the end of a branch of line 3, and then walk south.

Great place.
Jul. 2016 • Couples
If you like nature that the place for you. Animals, birds, flowers ... we can go by bicycle or just walk. Nice to do a picnic with family. Kids will love it.

Peaceful
Aug. 2014 • Family
Follow the signs from Lattes - or ask for directions at the Tourist Information (the lady on duty spoke excellent English and was very helpful). If you go late afternoon or at dusk, you will need your repellent (Jungle Formula) with you so you don't get bitten.
There is hide, an information hut (which is seasonal and limited opening hours), plenty of walks to see the wildlife on offer. Also, take some water and a decent camera. A great couple of hours.

Nice hike in the swanps
Jul. 2013 • Friends
It's a very nice area, well arranged for walking. Unfortunately there's not many shaded areas to sit during the walk.
We were not very lucky in the number of animals we could see, but there was one stork in its nest, which was cool.
