Torse walk

Aix en Provence - Landscape

A path alongside the Torse stream, between the Cezanne Road and Route de Nice, in the eastern part of the city. The entrance is on the Cezanne Road (Route du Tholonet).

The footpath and the fitness trail follow the stream, sometimes crossing it by wooden foot bridges. Some huge plane trees give the path a very natural feel of being in the country. Poplars, cypresses, maples, weeping willows, walnut, chestnut and ash trees, oaks, pines and beautiful avenues lined with privet add to the charm of the walk.

A huge lake of 2,500m2 has been created, edged with aquatic and marginal plants and populated by fish and ducks. The existing vegetation has been supplemented by hardy trees and shrubs selected from the surrounding vegetation to preserve a natural appearance.
