    Private 19th century landscaped park of about 4 ha as part of the dendrological experience (study on trees) of the "Canal du Midi", around its different supply basins and on the Rigole. After 40 years of abandonment, and thanks to the support of the ONF and the European Plan for the Development of Rural Areas (PDZR-1993), it was rehabilitated, then finding its three routes: collecting American essences (sequoias, Western red cedar, Lawson cypress, Virginia tulip trees, Chilean araucaria), forest (wild cherry trees, white alis trees, rowan trees, typical of the flora of the Black Mountain), aquatic (aquaphilic plants, rhododendrons). New species have been planted (gingko bilobas, Negundo maples, cedars from the Himalayas and Lebanon, olive trees from Bohemia, liquidambars). Landscaped arboretum on the edge of Lake Lampy, planted with predominantly American exotic species, local and aquatic, for some bicentenaries, and "enlivened" by the fabulous world of Jean de la Fontaine. Open from May to October Access after Saissac, D 4 for 5 km towards Arfon, then D 324 towards Bassin du Lampy
