Arboretum de la Base de Loisirs de Jumièges

4 route du Manoir 76480 LE MESNIL-SOUS-JUMIEGES / Vallée de Seine

In the heart of the Jumièges-le-Mesnil Leisure Park, in the Seine Valley, there is an arboretum planted with some sixty tree species. Make the most of a pleasant walk in an unspoilt setting to explore this educational site. Thanks to interpretative signs at the foot of the trees, you will learn more about the trees planted there.

Today, I take the children to the leisure center of Jumièges-le-Mesnil, the ideal place to let off steam and enjoy a nice day with the family under the sun. We can enjoy the many activities offered, and the children are very enthusiastic. In the morning, we make pedal boat, and we even try the paddle, not simple! For the lunch, we go to the beach snack and eat at the edge of the water. In the afternoon program: Planèt? Enigma for the children and relaxation for me in the sun.

While they leave for the adventure, I go towards the beach. On my way, I see a sign with a map. I approach it and read "Remarkable trees". Here is an arboretum! I don't say no to a walk among the trees. I discover imposing and majestic trees, such as magnificent oaks and plane trees. As I walk in the shade of the foliage, I look up to admire the sun's rays that delicately rest on them. My sky is no longer blue, it is a cameo of green with brilliant colors. It is magnificent! In the distance, I can hear the laughter of children, but I feel cut off from the world. I concentrate on the sound of the leaves waving in the light breeze, and from time to time I hear twigs breaking under my feet. In the middle of this green landscape, I am wrapped in a bubble of calm and well-being, it is very relaxing. I savor this moment of simple pleasure.
The labels at the foot of the trees tell me their name and the family to which they belong. I even discover a ginkgo biloba, also called "tree of the forty écus? which had survived the Hiroshima atomic bomb! I am impressed by the resilience of this species, and more generally of nature in general. This initiative, as instructive as it is unusual, to set up an arboretum in the middle of a leisure facility, pleases me a lot.

My stroll brought me back to the beach. This instructive break will have put me in joy before putting my feet in the water!
